Wasikowska > Sono > Bernal > Silva > Khan > Kashyap
'Madly' gets standard mileage for an international anthology film. Two of these feel rather garish and on-the-nose in their relationship commentary, one with a sort of grossly sentimental spin on I-married-my-Dad tropes. Three of these are often rather charming, if somewhat insubstantial; Sono's sketch reaches for profoundly pleasing eroticism, though I'm skeptical as always of his invasive male gaze.
One of these is simply astonishing. Mia Wasikowska is an incredible new voice in filmmaking, mixing Richard Ayoade's gorgeous precision of framing with Lynne Ramsay's richly sensuous psychic detail. Her short truly plumbs the depths of what love is: Recognizing something outside yourself as a vivid, distinct human being, not just a decorative object.
