I'm just going to steal a line from glitter-hag's review that summed it up for me. "It almost felt like falling into a surreal dream after reading Agatha Christie underneath one of those black velvet paintings."
Hey @BUZZLIGHTQUEER YOU SPOILED THE MOVIE FOR ME! Just writing SPOILER midway through your two sentence review does not take into account how humans actually read text on a screen, we are not linear robots who go word by word, maybe you are, but not me. I read Evelyn Wood's speed reading guide as a youth and learned to scan text holistically, not like a child. Thank you for ruining my day, week, year, and ultimately, life.
Truly a beautiful film. The music, the cinematography, and the editing (ha), are moving and engaging.
I mostly loved this movie.*SPOILER* I am super annoyed that her rape victim is her savior and still in love with her. That was super disappointing.
