An occasionally cryptic...
3 May 2020 | by xstalSee all my reviews

An occasionally cryptic, complex and abstract performance of a film that could be the illegitimate child of Lynch, Almodovar and Gaspar Noe with shades of Fahrenheit 451. Tricky to align with reality, thought provoking nonetheless, beautifully acted and imaginative.
