I honestly do not recommend this movie, nor Cormac McCarthy's book to most, but the few that can handle its' bleak darkness will love it. It is truly a haunting story whether you watch it or read it. It goes down hard and sears the gullet. Many will dismiss it. I am glad for them and sad at the same time. La-la land has nothing to teach us. This movie does and it leaves the final lesson to us.
