Wonderful
10 October 2018 | by bavarianoryxSee all my reviews

Having come to the showing with any clue of films plot was I can confidently say I was very surprised. The beginning moved a little slow and the cinematography seemed almost primitive (I later learned that was intentional) but otherwise the film ultimately crescendoed into a tour de force. There aren't many films as intimate and visceral as this. More films should have teens and young adults working on the staff to give a different perspective from what film watchers are generally used to
