    This is my first rewatch since 2014 and wow it's been way too long, what a spectacular film. There are movies where you don't want to speak during it out of respect, then there are movies like this where you don't speak because you physically can't. It's such an overwhelming film.

Absolutely stunning movie, perfect structure, perfect acting, perfect set design, perfect climax, and it succeeds in expressing clear and important messages.
