    ★★★

    the first hitchcock i'm disappointed with; guess it'd happen eventually, but i wouldn't imagine it would be with one of his classics. there's a theatricality in display here that doesn't match the tone of the film at all, and coupled with the lack of soundtrack (which sometimes really works against the movie), gives a stiltedness to the first and second act. glad those 25-30min of chaos exist, otherwise this would be pretty unremarkable.

    Basically, Before Sunrise and Before Midnight condensed into one movie.

    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…
