I’m not here to defend this movie, nor to explain why it was my favorite film of last year, but to advise you to watch it again and try to see beyond the obvious elements that were the subject of the hottest takes of 2015. This western mystery is a play in disguise as a big operatic snowy masterpiece, where every performance is among the best roles that the cast have had in their careers.
