This mini docuseries is split into three parts:
1. Oh! This person is feeding off of our attention.
2. Let’s give him more attention. Are we complicit?
3. You just watched a 3 hour documentary about this guy... are YOU complicit?
This film is absolutely gorgeous, Haley Lu Richardson is a marvel and John Cho plays his character with so much restraint, it’s heartbreaking. Every shot in Columbus is so meticulously calculated that it elevates daily life into something grandiose.
I loved Kogonada’s video essays on film and I love him making films. I think I need to rewatch it to fully appreciate it.
