THE VAST OF NIGHT (Video Release USA 2019)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

The Vast of Night
returns viewers to an era when dialogue has been so well rehearsed that actors can perform multiple tasks while delivering their lines. This movie uses an old storyline, alien abduction of humans, and it is not perfect, but is almost there. It completely captures the 1950s era with WOW for nostalgia by using terrific props and some of the best work in cinematography. It’s simple, human, and easily absorbed entertainment with a welcome low-key entertainment presentation.
