I think Adam Wingard has a lot of talent. His shooting style, shot selection and ability to coax from performers the most aching moments of raw emotion are gifts that should be acknowledged in any filmmaker. He also clearly knows the type of stories that he wants to tell and the approach that he wants to take with them. His latest film “A Horrible Way to Die” deals with the loss of self. Not in the Buddhist, relinquishing self on the path to enlightenment sense, but rather in a much more traumatic way.
