Binstead's Safari

Binstead's Safari is a wild ride. I was reminded of in part of Jean Renoir's film, 'The Rules of the Game,' along with a dash of Apichatpong Weerasethakul's 'Tropical Malady' (which, if you haven't seen, you should). An American couple, marriage on the rocks, finds themselves in Africa, woefully unprepared in a number of ways for what they encounter there - whirlwind love, endless landscape, transformation, and wildness. Stick around for the twist at the end - I devoured the last twenty pages the way a lion might eat a kill. Recommended by Katie
