Phenomenal screenplay, lovingly photographed, incredibly well acted and directed. I think it's an astonishing movie.
For a first-time, low budget, movie, it's a miracle. Miraculous that it could be executed so well, and miraculous in that the director stayed true to his story and his characters, rather than trying to go over the top in attracting attention and showcasing his brilliance.
It really captures in an honest way the duality of life.
It is amazingly straightforward, told without overacting, building characters whom we wind up caring about.
