Masterpiece.
12 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Acclaimed Filmmaker Gary Ellenberg has done it again. To say this film is a masterpiece is almost an insult to the film itself. It is far above that. Ellenberg continues to innovate the directing game, creating techniques that have never been done before, and switching up current ones, creating an original take, a breath of fresh air, on some of the most overused shots. Truly a cinematic achievement.
