Calico Skies, written and directed by Valerio Esposito, has a good place ambition. The High Desert is a region in which people tend to love or hate; Growing up in a southern California suburb, although the movie rarely plays on these factors, I have always been interested in the eye and sese.
Instead, it is a stand-up for emotional isolation, representing the distance between Phoenix itself and the rest of mankind. It is as effective as it is, but there is no story beyond that.
Phoenix, in the end, becomes annoying as the central character; Because none of the few characters rise to balance their immobility with any meaningful reaction until it is too late in the story. Until then, the film was swallowed with inertia; Adding random weapons and corpses to the mix is not helping.
