Finally watch the documentary October Country (trailer here), which took me a while to be in the right mood. The film is beautifully shot and although overwhelmingly heavy, did not feel completely devastating, if that makes any sense at all.
I am not sure why but I have a soft spot for heavy films, especially if the film is a doc. Anyway, if you are a fan of the genre and are prepared for a more pensive film, this is one I recommend. I think I also found it easier to watch because I am alone tonight.
