    I couldn’t help but think this would have made a really good pilot episode for an HBO show, rather than a feature length movie. Standing on its own it felt lacking, Almost that it deserved more but I also didn’t want more because it was so brutal. I’m calling it now that it will be an overrated film 10 years down the road.

    Isn’t family so much fun? 

    I need more Krisha in more movies please. The story wasn’t always compelling but the performance by Krisha was. You can tell this was a deeply personal story and mattered to the actors in the film (probably because most of the actors were family members) . 

    I really enjoyed how the film felt and looked like a family home video but with better production value. That may seem like an insult but I really mean it as a compliment. It worked for the aesthetic of the film and created a really compelling image.

    If I could remake a film that I love, it would be this one. I will do my best to remake this as the queerest movie I possibly can.

    ★★★★

    Giving it back a half star to bring it up to 4. Watched the Directors cut this weekend. Still made me feel like a psycho for loving this movie, but I don't care. It's one horribly beautiful ugly thing after another and it's perfect.
