Less is More With HOLD THE DARK – Director Jeremy Saulnier and Writer Macon Blair


Retired naturalist and wolf expert Russell Core (Jeffrey Wright) journeys to the edge of civilization in northern Alaska at the request of Medora Slone (Riley Keough), a young mother whose son was killed by a pack of starving wolves. As Core attempts to help the woman process her grief, a strange and dangerous relationship between these two lonely souls develops. But when Medora’s husband Vernon (Alexander Skarsgård) returns from his brutal tour in the Iraq War, the news of his dead child ignites a violent chain of events across this frozen landscape. As Donald Marium (James Badge Dale), a local cop, races to stop Vernon’s seemingly senseless rampage, Core finds himself trapped on a perilous odyssey into the heart of darkness. Paul Salfen interviews Director Jeremy Saulnier and Writer Macon Blair.  Streaming on Netflix now.
