Really great dialogue, performed beautifully by a terrific cast. Great cinematography. And a really impressive musical score. This movie made me think of 'Phantom Thread' by Paul Thomas Anderson. Also, clearly some Sunset Boulevard references. Slow, mysterious, character driven, deliberate. Great on a rainy night, alone. Felt like a cool play.
