If the world was not locked, I suggest you all go and see First cow, which just came out last weekend. This is Kelly Reichardt’s latest film, and despite the hilarious and simple title, it is a very good film. It can be loosely described as a film about the theft of a cow’s milk, but also about friendship, capitalism and delicious fried fatty cakes.
One of the really interesting things about the movie is to spoil the ending right at the start of the movie. (I won’t spoil what this ending is here, even if it’s technically not a spoiler as it happens five minutes later.) I don’t remember seeing another movie doing something exactly like that. TV shows, like breaking Bad, often untied climatic moments (which I never liked), but First cow telegraphy where it goes in a way that actually amplifies the tension. You know that a certain event is happening. The questions are when and how it will happen.
Since you’re probably not going to cinemas anytime soon, I want to point out that other great Reichardt movies are available on popular streaming platforms. Night movements, a thriller on eco-terrorism, is on Amazon, and Meek break, which concerns a band of settlers lost in the desert, is on Amazon and Hulu.
