    A sick joke.

    In my eyes this might actually be one of Ozu's most undervalued and moving works. It would be so easy for all of this to devolve into a straight condemnation or endorsement of marriage, or for x character to be good or y character be bad. But it's never that simple with Ozu, because it's never that simple with life. You think you know what he's trying to say, then something happens and your perspective on what you've just seen…

    My mind boggles at how a movie can be so perfect in every facet of every second.

    ★★★★½

    oh its so good. so fucking good.

    It works on the level of just a really tense, engaging thriller, it works as acommentary on AI, it works as a commentary on the way men mistreat women, it works as a story of empowerment, it works as a commentary on the male gaze, it works on so many levels, i love love love it. And did i mention that like every actor is basically flawless? I even liked Domnhall Gleeson! I thought I hated him! But i don't, he's great! What!
