    Great slapsticky performance by Fassbender, but I wish the film was more of that and less of the mopey audience stand-in bending the narrative around himself. The music is stuff I'd actually listen to, though. Not sure if that makes me a hipster or it's not as abrasive/challenging as the film imagines it is (or maybe it's that statement that makes me a hipster).

    What an amazing film. Keeps jumping between moods and genres in a way that reminds me of modern South Korean cinema. Also, the amount of room each scene had to breathe was unusual. Most shots have an extra second or two at the beginning or end that gives the movie as a whole a kind of shaggy suspense.

    This was the first Wes Anderson film I watched, and for years my least favorite. Turns out I was just watching them wrong.
