Gut-wrenching, astonishing ride through vulgar, dirty reality
6 April 2019 | by aleksypotockiSee all my reviews

I left the cinema astonished, able only to mutter a "wow" under my breath. This movie starts as an extremely vague and almost mystical journey, and, as the plot unveils, finishes as a solid, strong crime novel, where every piece fits together as it should. If I were to compare it to internationaly recognized movies/series, I would strongly lean towards True Detective. The vibe is similiar, yet different in its own, brutal way - with much more depth. The camera work is short of a masterpiece. The landscapes captures are akin to works of art, the shots are wonderfully done. I'm still in awe. Highly recommended to anyone with a strong stomach and penchant for a solid, cruel crime story with an ending, that will certainly not leave you unsatisfied.
