I can't express enough how much I loved this strange but yet deeply touching film. I've seen Pruitt Taylor Vince in various roles here and there, but this is by far the best one I've ever seen him play.
Liv Tyler was stunning, as she always is. Her role here was wonderful. Her presence on screen is commanding yet subtle at the same time.
I was stunned by the emotion put forth by Vince. His eyes spoke for him 90% of the time. It said volumes which his character simply could not express. There is nothing heroic about the Victor character he plays, yet there is nothing insignificant about him either. It's a peculiar personality that somehow remains endearing.
I felt deeply enthralled in a very subdued way with this movie. I'd consider Heavy to be a gem of a film. Understandably overlooked, but if you have the patience and the willingness, it is a film that will impact you, without a doubt. I happened to have enjoyed the soundtrack and it added splendidly to the experience.
I want to add something else, it is a difficult thing to express in words, but I think I can properly relay it... The film offers a glimpse into one man's potential, a potential still so hidden, but beaming with hope nevertheless, that this facet alone will strike you in a surprisingly intense way. I am so glad I stumbled upon this film!
