Fantasia 2020: ‘Climate of the Hunter’ is dark, weird, stylistic throwback | Awesome Friday!

Climate of the Hunter

To reiterate, this movie is deeply weird. It’s also shallow.

Climate of the Hunter features several monologues from Wesley, stories of his travel, and his devotion to his wife, but nothing of any real substance is discussed in all his talk. Oh, sure, it sounds like there is, but it only sounds like it. 

The one interesting hook, whether Wesley is a vampire or just an ageing lothario with a weird sleep schedule and a particularly severe allergy, takes most of the film to resolve, but once it did, I had a hard time caring. For me, it could have gone either way, and it wouldn’t have made a difference.
