    Intriguing worthwhile debut feature

    I’ve watched live cargo twice! The film reminded me of Bela Tarr’s work
    and the Art-house films of Gus Van Sant. There is not much dialogue.
    Moody, rhythmic and effectively hypnotic. By the half way point I felt
    like the images put me in a trance. The actors do a great job,
    especially the lesser known actors and what seem to be local non
    actors. What I like most about this movie is that it balances a surreal
    vibe within a world that is captured in a neo-realism fashion. The
    structure is unique and boldly refreshing, the last 30 minutes are very
    thrilling. The execution is mostly flawless, it certainly feels like
    the work of an auteur with a seasoned crew. Surprised to see that this
    is the directors first movie.

    Enigmatic Masterwork

    One of the boldest debut films in recent memory. Caught this gem in
    VOD. Live Cargo played on the festival circuit for the last year since
    it’s Tribeca Film Festival premiere in 2016. I have not seen such an
    artful movie come out of the Caribbean region in years. I would compare
    it in many ways to the 60s classic ”I Am Cuba.” Mainly, due to it’s
    artistic merit and the black and white photography. This film is heavy
    on style, as it seemingly transported me to it’s own unique cinematic
    realm. The visuals are beautiful, but so is the score and source music.
    The editing is flawless and I was pulled into the story so deeply that
    I forgot I was watching a movie. I was totally hooked. The director
    does a great job with the actors. I cannot recall a moment that felt
    false or poorly acted. Stanfield is great here. I have read the
    director Sandler and actor Stanfield have worked together prior. I
    would love to see them hopefully work again. Also, the most
    unforgettable performance in my opinion was the mysterious Myron played
    by relative newcomer Sam Dillon. He has such a haunting look and is
    able to get across his emotions with a subtle glance. The film is very
    mysterious and leaves some things open to interpretation, but with that
    I never once felt short on details or left confused – it was always
    clear what was really happening. That is what makes the film special
    and unique. There is a real sense of style with how the narrative
    reveals itself to the audience. I was never spoon fed, Sandler seems to
    respect his audience’s intelligence. Seek this film out.

    Mythic & Surreal 1st Feature

    Live Cargo is timeless. Loved this moody and mythic film. Although it
    is a tragedy, there is something very sexy about Live Cargo. The film
    seems to be layered in symbols and metaphors. It just as much a movie
    as it is a poem. That is not to say it was not thrilling. Their is some
    intriguing noir like elements embedded in the film. Some brilliant
    foreshadowing is trickled through out, but that is all that I will say
    in regards to that. Stunned to see that this was Logan Sandler
    (director + co-writer) first film. Wow, okay. Cinema is not dead! This
    new director could be become the bad boy of tropic cinema.
    Cinematographer Daniella Nowitz is surely on this rise after this.
    Loved Dree Hemingway as Nadine. Have not seen her in this big of a role
    since Starlet. She is ready for something major! I will say that this
    film feels a bit under the radar and with this type of vision, I would
    say that it is shamefully underrated / unknown. If you love cinema,
    then this will be a great viewing experience. This film is a lesson in
    thoughtful movie-making!

    Don’t understand the 6.8 rating

    For IMDb, 6.8 should portray a film that will be entertaining and a
    quality watch. This film just is not that. The black and white is a
    positive and I agree that there are some great visuals. But this movie
    is just bland and boring. The characters are not developed at all, the
    story line has no real backbone to it and you are left wondering what
    is is that you’re actually watching. Not until the last 20 minutes of
    the movie do you see what is going on. It completely missed the mark
    and did not hold my attention at all.

    This is Cinema

    Enjoyed this piece of cinematic filmmaking quite a bit. Unique
    characters and well acted performances. It’s a very fresh take on noir,
    in a rarely seen setting with a hint of Terrence Malick vibes. The
    storms throughout the film are magnificent and can’t forget the
    underwater sequence with the shark!
