the GREY man passes
Aside from a few typical movie goofs and what to me was an erroneous zoological fallacy (the relentless wolf pack) it is a brutally simple movie that hits home. It is artistic and has a soul that so many movies miss these days. The opening narration supplied by Ottway (Liam Neeson) let you know exactly what was going on without giving you too much-it was spartan, but anymore would have been reaching into overkill-the simplicity is what won me over.
That and the dark humor.
Ultimately we do have our climax and here is where I suspect most of my fellow movie goers had a problem~I don't wish to spoil anything-it is worth seeing, but it is a "You figure it out" ending.
I loved that as he prepared for his confrontation with The GREY? alpha wolf, he recited his fathers poem yet again...
Once more into the fray.
Into the last good fight I'll ever know.
Live and die on this day.
