Vita & Virginia ★★★★

“i feel as if a dark pool of sticky water were closing over me. it’s that you’re not here”

frustrating that this is both so sharp and muddled in approach: i can’t love its faults, but i so love the tenderness found buried beneath, and it called me back. the music is so enchanting, and the rhythmic love letters bouncing back and forth create a rich dialogue, but it’s still all kept at arms length somehow. in the brief moments of clarity however, it wins me over and i find myself in tears. let’s bump it up to a 4
