    Hard to overstate how much I enjoyed the gentle contempt in the phrase “half in love with oblivion.”

    That was an awful lot of bad decisions.

    ★½

    Like a version of The Shining, in which the snow and the ghosts have been replaced by non sequiturs and recursive dream sequences.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I can't figure out how to feel about the failure of Mateusz's family to establish communication with him, over a period of decades, even while they believed that he fully aware. How does it take a clinical psychologist to hit on the innovation of "blink once for yes, twice for no"?

    I'd chalk this up to bad writing, except that the film's late revelations (including the press attention, and the relocation threat) were predicated on no one having known he could communicate over the entirety of his life.
