Victoria

Victoria ★★★★

Victoria starts out slow. For the first 45 minutes I was sitting there wondering when it was going to take off, but then holy fuck it did, and it didn't stop till the credits role. Victoria had my heart racing once things kicked off. I literally can't believe this film was done in one shot. Birdman was a better film, but this was way more elaborate and impressive. The one take approach works so well here because the film takes place in real time, obviously. Without that, the film would had suffered in my opinion. Believe the hype, see Victoria as soon as you can, because despite films like Birdman, Russian Ark, and Silent House, I promise you, there is nothing else out there like Victoria.
