Mortensen’s latest is “Far from Men,” an adaption from a short story by Albert Camus (“L’Hôte” from the book “L’Exil et le Royaume”). In this gritty tale of survival, Mortensen plays a reclusive teacher who helps a villager accused of murder (Reda Kateb from “Zero Dark Thirty” and “A Prophet”) escape into the mountains during the Algerian War. As we’ve already noted, this is also one to watch because the score was composed by the great Nick Cave and Warren Ellis (“The Assassination of Jesse James,” and “The Road” are just a few examples).
