Nonetheless, the portrayal of a psychologically broken man is quite intense. What’s hard to grasp was the the decision making The Brown Bunny into a feature length, it would’ve been utterly fine as an hour short film.

Definitely Koreeda’s overlooked masterpiece

I haven't read the book yet but it is…
