First Reformed vs. Winter Light

First Reformed is a shameless rip-off of Bergman's classic with a hamfisted substitution of general despair with environmentalism run amok. It has far less heart, Hawke's protagonist isn't even close to being as relatable as Bjornstrand's, and Winter Light's non-English script resonated with me more deeply despite being 54 years older.
