Superb and subversive
15 November 2018 | by palovyperSee all my reviews

Young Andy (Tye Sheridan) is sexually ambivalent. Does he desire women, men, both or something in between? When his father dies he takes a job as a photographer, going on the road with physician Wallace (Jeff Goldblum), who performs lobotomies at various insane asylums.

This slow, strange and superb film will likely divide audiences. At times it's completely incomprehensible but it's also constantly mesmerizing, hypnotic and beautiful. Most significantly though, this subversive piece of work is an important comment on the pressures of heterosexuality, showing that the price of conformity is sometimes way too high.
