Eye For Film: A Lonely Place To Die
If A Lonely Place To Die evokes Deliverance and Southern Comfort, its Scottish setting and its broad respect for the locals are something new for the survival subgenre. DP Ali Asad captures the Highland peaks and troughs in stunning Scope, while Gilbey, splitting the writing and editing duties between himself and his brother William, provides tensely atmospheric direction and some very deftly handled narrative surprises – including one or two guaranteed to elicit collective gasps from the audience. This is high-end cinema.
