Price: $2,200.00

Description: Confrontation in a sled dog camp

Comment: I guess like just about everything I say in these comments, this is a matter of opinion: I think though that Allen is very underrated. In particular here he conveys well the narrative while providing a sense of the open expanses of the setting, while at the same time, mostly through the flattening of the background provides an almost claustrophobic sense of dread. Pretty clearly there’s going to be trouble.

Price: $2,200 + $150 domestic shipping.
