After 15 minutes I noticed how well the filmmaker uses imagery
Here are a couple of examples and they require an attentive mind to spot them. I see a man who wouldn't hurt a fly. To me I see not a gentleness but strong religious beliefs.
Another good example is of a man slowly and carefully washing himself using a pail of water. What I see here is ritual.
A third example, the most persuasive in the opening act, is watching that recently cleansed man walking out into the daylight, coldly and calmly past his still quivering victim along a waterway choked with floating garbage.
This is a movie that makes the viewer read between the lines.
You have to study the context and emotion, not a dialog heavy movie you can listen to in the background and accomplish other tasks.
