Actually Not Bad At All
4 April 2019 | by socratesadamoSee all my reviews

BEFORE YOU KNOW IT is not the sort of film that's for everyone. And that's actually sort of what made it stand out to me. While I liked it, I know that for most it will be more of a "love it or hate it" type of thing.

It's a unique story, wonderfully acted and powerfully directed. The cinematography is great. There are a few moments that I didn't particularly care for, but overall I enjoyed it. Recommend.
