    ★★★★★

    One of the best dance sequences in any film.

    Also Mica Levi's soundtrack is to-die for. One of the great scores of all time. The track "Love" is an effective summary for the feelings evoked by this film. Utterly alien and gorgeous at once.

    ★★★★

    Daniel Lopatin accentuates the tension in the film with a killer synth-heavy soundtrack. Top 3 soundtrack this year that also reminded me also of Kurt Stenzel's work for "Jodorowsky's Dune." Also reminds me of Hirasawa Susumu's soundtracks for various anime series and films.

    Now, the movie itself? Don't have anything to add to the previous reviews. I'll throw my voice into the chorus and say that the ending is a glorious one. Kevin Garnett does an unexpectedly great job, and I highly recommend people who liked this film follow up by reading interviews with Kevin Garnett regarding his experience of working with the Safdie brothers.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I enjoyed the film got better and better for me as I watched it, building in momentum. Great performances through the cast, top-and-bottom. Every character felt alive and real to me. What keeps this at four stars for me is that I felt there was something off about the editing between the two time points. I think my enjoyment of the film peaked close to the end of the film when there was no more jumping between time points.

    Especially…

    A lot of people will say that this is the greatest film of all time. This is likely true. This film also certainly has one of the greatest soundtracks of all time.
