    Nihilistic, gay rage with just enough tenderness underneath to keep me with it despite finding it kind of unpleasant to watch.

    This is so deranged, I’m ready to be official with it. I’m no way an actual “good movie” but also a pure auteurist statement from Kristin Wiig as a performer/writer. Wish I was watching this on a plane to my own vacation.

    Reminds me of In the Mood for Love, the doomed connection of two people who meet at the wrong time, focused on the wrong people. The central conceit of the ambiguous modern setting is genius but also not overbearing, works perfectly to tie today’s rise in fascism and oppression to the past’s.


    Also, after this and Undine I think I’m a bit obsessed with Franz Rogowski. What a phenomenal talent.

    The real gold is the friends we made along the way.
