The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden ★★★★★

One of the most masterful pieces of media that I've ever experienced. This film just oozes with creativity and you it really showcases a visionary at the top of his filmmaking game. Visually it's flawless, and the score blends perfectly to create one of the best atmospheres of any film ever. The story is just simply perfect, utilizing a creative and mesmerizing method of telling it. Despite being incredibly long, this film felt the perfect length, as perhaps its greatest strength is its pacing.

There are plenty of concepts that are impossible for me to comprehend. The concept of infinity, the concept of the creation of time, the concept of multiple universes. Perhaps the most puzzling idea for me though is the concept of a better film existing out there. I don't know if I an comprehend that.
