    I rewatched this on Christmas day with my good friend Jonathan, and spent the next few days trying to figure out how I would write about this film. Letterboxd has gone to shit over the holiday season, and so I finally felt motivated to start my own blog where I wrote an extended piece on the movie. I'd appreciate if it could be given a read, I'd transfer it straight here but I don't think it would look visually appealing on this site given its length, and I liked using stills to illustrate different points.

    Tentative rating because I truly don't know what to make of this and it's unlike anything I've ever seen before. Existing on its own terms, utterly chaotic, almost like the rebirth of cinema as we know it, and the rest of the world has yet to catch up.

    I’m always in awe of Guy Maddin’s filmmaking even if I can never totally get into his narratives.

    Better than Raw—and more engaging from moment to moment—thanks to the performances and the surprising emotional throughline which develops in the back half, even if it contains many of the same problems as that film (its provocations are way too calculated for my liking and I don't think Ducournau is a very good dramatist). I get why this works for some but I feel like if it truly was going to be effective it needed to have images and ideas which linger and obfuscate rather than signify.

    Between this and Three Billboards, audiences at TIFF can screw off.
