Comments:
“Agar’s Steevy is a nervous and suspicious psychopath and, like his uncle Neil, a master of doublespeak. These characters are not charming but they seduce us because they chew the decor down to sawdust. Every once in a while it feels like Hikers and Farmers are from two different movies. This creates a deep unease in the film, with the dissonance acting as an extension of the Us vs. Them conflict that emerges. Dublin InQuirer
