I was worried that after the incredible sensory overload of an opening, this would make its point early and then fizzle. At first this seemed to be the case, but then it found so many inventive ways to drive home the point and expand its scope beyond just the historical aspects that my worries dissipated quickly.
These cinematic concerns were replaced by an all-engulfing terror of and for the human condition, so it’s safe to say that once again, Glazer has shattered the mold. Devastating stuff. Wildly impressive. Maybe the best use of digital cinematography since It Follows.
More thoughts coming soon to ScullyVision.
