    A Separation

    ★★★★

    A neatly contained and intriguing family drama (tragedy?) from Ashgar Farhadi. The pacing and perspective-shifting were extremely effective, and the acting was great. I will definitely be returning to Farhadi’s other work in the future.

    Quite literally a masterpiece? Love the colors and the score (which I know is a super unique thing to say) and I just can’t wait for whatever Glazer does next.

    This is the biggest, most batshit fucking insane thing I have ever seen. Some of it was great and some of was not-so-great, but all of it was COMPLETELY BONKERS. I can’t believe the biggest movie in the world is this goddamn weird. I honestly can’t even believe this is a movie at all. But here we are, it’s 2019 baby. 

    More sophisticated thoughts to come (perhaps in the form of a podcast), but this is my first reaction.
