The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden ★★★★

This is definitely a film that deserved a rewatch. Because of the script and the way things are structured, watching it for the second time is really fulfilling. My issues with it being too reliant on its dense plot pretty much went away, and since I already fully understood what would happen I was able to relax and appreciate what a quality film this really is. There's a particular scene towards the end that is one of my favorites of the year. The only thing that prevents it from being an absolute favorite is that it doesn't give me a very strong emotional reaction.

Oh and the poster is still a gem.
