    in equal parts excellent and inconsistent, it’s hard to really praise this film for its sense of dread and nail biting moments when the first half of the film sets up a simple premise so laboriously IMO.

    when the nail biting moments come though, they don’t fuck around, I don’t think I’ve held my breath so long during a film, that shit is HARD.

    happy I bought the bluray and satiated my curiosity in this film, not as great as I expected but I had fun with it.

    a great introduction into almodovars work!! I just picked up a box set of five of his films from cex so gonna get through them in the next week.

    I loved how the story just kept unravelling and developing and the central themes seemed clear throughout, great performances and humour too, if his other films follow in this same vein then I think I’ll be in love with this man xxxx

    I fucking love Richard Linklater. his magic and comfortable love of information always powers through each of his films. I think this is a beautiful addition to his already vibrant filmography. I hope this gets more attention due to its Netflix release than what it would usually get.

    the switches between imagination and information were so swift and grew on me throughout the runtime. the rotoscope animation isn’t for everyone I understand, but I love when linklater uses it, it…

    hospitality is work which basically places you in a food chain of power and humiliation, making the implicit of capitalism, explicit in your everyday life. 

    the bottom of the hospitality chain treats those who feed them usually like feckless pigs, not knowing what to do. They’ve been fed with a false idea that the people above them are service sellers and not people who they’d converse with otherwise.

    the step up is your servers, people just trying to earn some…
