Two Deaths of Henry Baker
Watching Two Deaths of Henry Baker is one of those viewing experiences where the audience knows without a doubt that this is all leading up to something terrible. Terrible things will happen along the way, of course, but we’re all waiting for The Big Terrible that we know is coming at the end. We know that some of these characters will be killed, some will do the killing and some will get to experience both. After all, the title itself promises us at least two deaths. The trick for filmmakers attempting this sort of thing is in making both the journey compelling and the ending satisfying. Two Deaths of Henry Baker succeeds in both: the anticipation of The Big Terrible, the Lesser Terribles along the way and the Big Terrible itself all hit their marks perfectly. For fans of greed, murder, revenge and Terrible Things.
