THE SHEP­HERD

OUT 2 JUNE

Total Film - - Big Screen -

A hit at last year’s Rain­dance Film Fes­ti­val, this stripped-back, quietly pow­er­ful Span­ish drama pits a prin­ci­pled shep­herd (Miguel Martín) against the de­vel­op­ers who want to buy his land. Writer/ di­rec­tor Jonathan Cen­zual Bur­ley’s ob­vi­ous tight bud­get mir­rors his cen­tral char­ac­ter’s min­i­mal­ist lifestyle, but still al­lows for some im­pres­sive flour­ishes. The re­sult is a strik­ing, well-com­posed modern western. Matt Looker
