Edit: saw another review that mentioned the physical acting. I hadn't even thought to weigh that in! Raised the star rating by one. Bloody good job, Liam.
A hunter-gatherer living in the wild finds a ringing smart-phone and, curious as to the device's nature, takes it back to his modest camp to investigate.
I liked the premise. A technological not-knower faced by a curios device is eventually hunted by people looking for its owner. Genre-wise, the balance of suspense and excitement was definitely there. I think the plot could have been expanded to show where the owner of the mobile had gone, as while I was given a strong sense of anticipation, there was no payoff. Beyond that, I liked many of the shots and scenes, especially with the 'savage' in his element. I enjoyed the guitar in the soundscape and felt that it helped to set it apart from films with largely no-copyright files from the internet. Admittedly, it felt better suited to the calm scenes than the thrilling ones, so I think there could have been an alternative style in those areas.
The outfit of the 'savage' I found confusing. It is quite modern, but it's torn up. It suggests to me that either little thought was put into costume, or, there was a backstory element that was not included in the film.
Overall, I enjoyed it. 4/7
