Fully respect this as a piece of art.
13 June 2019 | by hayleywraggSee all my reviews

This film reminded me of looking at a bizarre painting. Where you can't quite work it out but you can't stop looking and every tiny part is fascinating. I love the way it was filmed and the pace of the film. It felt a little slow compared to other films but for me this made me enjoy it more as I felt more in touch and aware of everything the film was trying to say. It's the kind of film I want to watch over and over to notice a different thing each time.
