    Took a peak at the new Sight & Sound greatest films list and realized I haven't seen about half of the movies on there. Thought it might be a good winter activity to go through and catch up and starting with this one as it's been on my watchlist for ages.

    No surprise here, but the structure of this with competing, conflicting narratives is really interesting, and even more so after you learn what truly happened and understand everyone's motivations. While the truth is important here, the lies are equally so and reveal so much about each character.

    Country girls make do.

    Really dug how simple this film was, but the complexity (+ just plain weirdness) found here within Mia Goth's performance and the character herself.

    I watch movies specifically to feel something. In 2 and a half hours I didn’t here. Well, except for disappointment and frustration.

    The way the film’s sole key female character was wrote seemed straight out of a John Green novel. An easily disposable beautiful, mysterious, highly sexual, former girl next door with a deep sadness (that we never receive any insight into) who matters only so much as she affects and attracts the incredibly average male protagonist. That’s a no from me.

    When Rachel 1 asked Rachel 2 if she still only fancies women and Rachel 2 responded with a fervent nod, a devilish grin, and by taking a puff of Rachel 1's cigarette I lost it.

    Honestly this may be the best stealth comedy of the year.
