Trivia

In preparation for her role, Brit Marling befriended a man who went blind at age 19 to tutor her in coping with the day-to-day chores of a typical blind person. The couple would meet in downtown Manhattan and she would spend up to 6 hours per day learning how to clean an apartment, make an omelet, etc. Throughout these sessions Brit would be blindfolded.

Poetic, Haunting, and Beautiful
17 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show may not be for everyone, however if you're intrigued by deep, energy filled, powerful works of art then I couldn't recommend this more. Sure, on the surface people can nit pick about minute, and overall insignificant details, perhaps in regards to the acting (which I find to be impeccable) or the pace (which is a very superficial observation). If ones analyzing those things then they're missing the point. Anyone seeking a show with true depth, this is for you. This show is one of those masterpieces that brings out something deep in you that makes you change your ways of thinking. This is not a show to simply pay half attention to, or to have on for background noise. This show demands all of you, it will pull you into its vortex. If you enjoy cinema that can truly move you to your core, like Into the Void, Inception, or even Requiem for a dream; really shake your perception of reality, then please give this a chance. It provides such a cold whimsical poetic darkness to your soul. This is a true work of art.
