During the first half of this film, you’ll be scratching your head. The script goes in several directions and, for a good while, it doesn’t show its cards. Most characters are ass hole. Whoever the good guys are, and that takes a while to figure out, they’ve got one hell of a problem. They get bullied, shot at, attacked by savage dogs. One of them steps in bear traps... and that’s not pretty.
Wilderness is nicely shot, but it doesn’t make the best of its environment. We should be seeing more landscapes and we should feel immersed. On the contrary, subjects are closely framed. It’s all about the characters. The actors are skilled. The gore is brutal and very well done. The dialogue is aggressive, but, of course, it has to be. The conversations are always intense, always dense.
The main problems with Wilderness are its lack of focus and its redundancy. It’s also hard to sympathize with the victims. Here, the enemy is everyone and everywhere. This anomaly is nonsensical, counterintuitive, and it creates a clusterfuck. What’s more, the things that puzzle us in the first two acts don’t make much sense in the third one. The answers we are given are not easily accepted.
