Is this a western? Is this a comedy? Is it a horror? A period drama? In the film that Time Out described as “Dances with Werewolves” (or, more accurately, Wendigos), Antonia Bird fluently directs Guy Pearce, Robert Carlyle and David Arquette as they explore cannibalism in 1840s California. Pearce and Carlyle are fantastic, the location shooting is beautiful, and the tone shifts so often the audience is never sure what is coming next. Are Pearce and Carlyle sexy vampires who are totally into each other? Or are they hard-bitten soldiers of war, determined to get their own way, each more lawless and wild than the lands they inhabit? Who knows? You decide.

Antonia Bird
(*1951; ✝2013 in London) started out directing episodes of long-running soaps EastEnders and Casualty before moving on to more upscale drama. Safe, a tale about homeless teenagers, won her a BAFTA in 1993. She is best known for Priest (1994) and Ravenous.
