    This film is incredible!! I love when a film just comes together so completely and so beautifully. This movie is tonally focused, and written so wonderfully. I read it described as almost a psychological thriller and I agree. The two elements of this film that I enjoyed the most were the camera work and the score.

But the further along the film goes, the better it all works, and the more it all starts to come together. The writing and acting is impeccable, and the method in which it’s shot just adds to that. It feels like you’re watching a documentary, and the documentary is made and edited by the characters themselves. They are flawed…
