    ★★★½

    Still unsure about the rating. It's better than Elephant, that's for sure, but maybe not as good as Good Will Hunting. Gerry's sinister use of soundtrack reminded me of The Brown Bunny, and even thematically both films are similar. Van Sant explores character and space in such a vivid way, I can't understand how many people dismiss this as 'boring'.

    It was obvious from the get-go Affleck's kid brother was going places.

    How come nobody has addressed the fact that the lead actor looks like Russian Ryan Gosling??????

    The best episode of Narcos I have ever seen.

    Some thoughts (it's late, I'm scared):

    - The soundtrack. Holy shit. Even better than It Follows in this aspect; in many others too.
    - The writing is this is better than most dramas. Let that sink in.
    - Fuck you, audiences of the world. Fuck off. Just go watch Annabelle. (please don't call me a prick if you didn't like The Witch, but please do if you laughed loudly at your screening)
    - Not since Eraserhead I've been so scared…
