"Fly on the wall" presentation at its finest.

It felt as though I went on a journey to another place, to witness life play out itself. As soon as it finished, it is as though my mind came back to my body and I was back in my current setting. To construct this dense of a story surrounding a relatively large number of characters, across several locations with each having their own particular stories that are unfolding, while carrying a perfectly placed unifying theme to tie all of this together by its resolution–can only make this film a complete masterpiece.

Which it is. Very much so!
