Bradley’s review published on Letterboxd:
comes together much smother and clearer on a rewatch. Aster’s vision comes together much easier than on a first watch and the long runtime doesn’t feel like a crutch anymore. let’s all just get together and perform ancient Swedish folklore rituals to relieve ourselves of any grief and stress, it seems quite relaxing.
also, what does Aster do to get the kind of crying his actors give off? his films feature some of the most realistic crying i’ve ever seen in film. it never feels hokey or even like someone acting, it feels like actual broken people who are letting all their emotions out.
