It’s weird as hell but I really enjoyed this film.
Good acting all through. Loved the concept of celebrity obsession gone too far. Felt as though I had some kind of virus while watching but couldn't stop watching because I needed to know how it ended.
a unique premis with a cool french-student-art-project feel. the directing and cinematography was amazing. the movie is a bit slow pace with a twist that is not as thrilling as it could have been. i wish i liked the movie more but i can't help but to feel underwhelmed wit the whole thing. nevertheless a good watch
It's slow-burning and weird-as-hell. Love it. Lead is fantastic. Watching is like having a miserable head cold, all stuffed up and sick in the head, but you feel really cozy and just slightly, pleasantly incoherent because of the cold medicine you've taken.
I really loved the subtlety in this film. The lead actor was great. The whole world set up was masterfully done without over explanation. It was very beautiful, artful and a bit thought provoking.
