OK, I saw this and previewed it before I watched the whole thing while staining a bench I am building. It was a um, a very 'interesting' piece of cultural and sociological study of the unique persona that is prevalent in  the U.P. in so far as I can tell, not being intimately familiar with the area except in a general sense. It was interesting to note parallels between that demographic and others I have more personal experience with. The introduction of extraterrestrials I found somewhat unique though. AN interesting watch. I give it two thumbs.
 (It is weird though.)

Well GAB, I was 'conflicted' and I really hoped nobody would ask me that. ;D
 Its the kind of 'piece' where one must find themselves in a receptive and open mood for such things. Well, me anyway. I enjoyed it, to tell the truth, but it was somewhat 'different' than what I would usually look for.  I laughed pretty hard in some (probably inappropriate) spots and enjoyed the universal 'deer camp' accepted practices regardless of region, or I imagine, even country.
 It was fun entertainment. I am not sure how it did at The Oscars. Maybe Jeff knows.
 And Jeff, yes, I like a happy ending and it had that. :)
