Lester’s review published on Letterboxd:
Attended the Beyond Fest west coast premiere w/ the Bong Gawd. Went ahead and bumped this up to classic status.
—The subtitles are exponentially better and especially funnier than the one I previously watched.
—Much easier to appreciate its sterilized visuals on a big screen.
—The social critique was more pointed than I remember; with some truly on-the-nose “poignant” moments that I didn’t recognize on second viewing. This did not ruin my enjoyment of the movie, however.
—There are a couple of moments here that should be on the Toilets With Threatening Auras twitter acct
—So masterfully structured that for better or for worse, its genre-bending craft overshadows everything else it has to offer. One of the best of the decade.
