    35mm. PFA in Berkeley. Beautiful and hilarious. Still one of my favorite endings ever.

    Erin Bell no longer belongs to reality. Her trauma sticks to her like dust. She only appears to fit when she's playing a role.

    Strong work from everyone involved. Kidman's look felt more Brechtian than Oscar-baity. At this point in her career, I don't think she's Charlize Theron-level desperate for recognition. I loved when she went all Lana del Rey in the desert.

    This was an achievement...of a kind.

    Nice sound design, though. Use of theremin in the score not always successful but sometimes very cool.
