3) The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot
A movie about legends, masculinity, and myths, Robert D. Krzykowski’s debut film tricks the audience into watching a heartfelt movie about a man reflecting on his life; and the sacrifices he made. Telling the story of a soldier who famously killed Hitler and is now being asked to kill bigfoot, the film breaks down the legends heroes build for themselves and gets to the heart of the sacrifices heroes make when building these legends. Sam Elliot gives an astoundingly vulnerable performance, and thereby gives weight and power to every conversation and scene he is in. Watching the film feels like listening to a war story from a veteran, as the poetic dialogue and lofty production gives great emotion to these stories.
