    ★★★★½

    The director KNOWS how to tell a story - not only through twists and keeping is interested, but in every. single. shot.
    You could teach filmmaking with this film. Except everyone would have to be over 18 and non-homophobic.

    This film seriously benefits from taking it seriously. Seriously.

    Just did it for me. The moment where everyone is surprised at them being so happy about getting a "5". As a person getting out of depression, I related so hard.
    Camerawork is crazy.
    So much love for everyone in this film.
    Also everyone is just really king to each other. There's love without using each other as things, which, for some reason, is very rare in films.
