First Cow ★★★★½

I would really, really like an oily biscuit with honey and a touch of cinnamon after watching this. Please.

Not usually a big fan of Kelly Reichardt's films but um... First Cow is kind of amazing?! I think I loved it. Not just a film about a cow, not just a film about friends, not just a film about the Northwest frontier. It has so much depth and heart and humility. Bravo. As someone else said, the beauty is in the details. It's in the moments and all the little touches and in between the words being spoken.

This film really turns up the heat when it becomes a film about baking delicious biscuits and how that changes everything. This is when it went from being damn good to absolutely amazing. And it sticks the landing perfectly.
