    A really great performance from the actors! Emile Hirsch and Kris Kristofferson jump off the screen with their powerful performances. Not to mention the visuals are gorgeous. A really strong directorial debut from the Polsky Brothers. I look forward to seeing what else they come out with in the future!

    A tragic story of two brothers - drunk, drifting along, and determined to distract themselves from their lives, both present and past. The animation, making the harsh realities of these men almost dream-like, brings to life this drunken journey in an icy and isolating environment.

    Powerful, moving and melancholy. A low-key treat.

    The central performances by Emile Hirsch and Stephen Dorff hold the film together with the intensity of their brotherly affection and support.

    So full of explanatory flashbacks and animated sequences visualizing the characters’ invented yarns that their real dramas are indeed almost obscured.
