First Cow (2019) Rated PG-13

A cook travels with a group of fur trappers to Oregon where he meets a Chinese immigrant. They go on a journey to find their fortune and become successful business associates. Starring Alia Shawkat, John Magaro, and Dylan Smith.

This film is unusual. The filmmakers have us follow the journey of these two men and what became of them. There isn’t a lot of adventure; it’s just a story, and it unfolds at a slow pace. The characters don’t make rational choices, which creates a number of plot holes in the film. The cinematography is bad, and the film is shot mostly in the dark, which causes difficulty when watching. Overall, the pacing is slow, the story is not written well, there are plot holes, and to top it off, you have the dark cinematography. This is an interesting story, but it lacks any real thrill, making the film not worth a watch.
