“The Grey” (2011) is an existential survival thriller directed and co-written by Joe Carnahan. The other co-writer was Ian MacKenzie Jeffers, who wrote the short story “Ghost Walker” which was adapted for the screenplay. Liam Neeson stars as the leader of a group of oil men who, after their plane crashes in Alaska, are pursued by a pack of grey wolves. The simplistic plot is given emotional depth with great acting from Neeson and the screenplay’s philosophical allusions.
