I saw this movie at Miami film festival. Although the tempo was slow, and characters were not very well developed, the cinematography was excellent. Long and artistic takes were attention capturing and worked well with minimalist conversation style.
The use of magic was interesting as well, it was not revealed in the movie if these were real paranormal instances or there was some sort of explanation.
The over-use of vodka made me think of prototypes. Was this was an intentional effect, I don't know.
