If you look hard enough, you can find truly great mysteries across the variety of film genres.  They’ve long been the province of historical fiction or period pieces looking back at some treacherous point in history.  Thrillers often wrap up one or several enigmas within their dark, elusive characters.  Science fiction tackles them by revealing the world hidden beneath.  Character dramas – much like director Daniel Nettheim’s THE HUNTER – occasionally …
