    ★★★★

    Really solid and effective Eastwood film. I wanted more from his arc (and the arc of his handler), and there were so many interesting avenues that just weren’t explored. The ending was a bit muddled and a little too messy (only to build suspense) for my liking. Still, a well-crafted film.

    At over eight hours, the cumulative effect is overwhelming. Interviews are allowed to go on as long as needed - with very few cuts - giving us an almost unmediated window in the lives of these survivors. And in the end, the weight of what we’ve just witnessed is staggering.

    Fun little short with an absolutely brilliant montage about halfway through.

    So incredible. I loved the continual reflections on the ephemerality of life, love, and memory. Quiet, mysterious, haunting... it’s also an interesting critique of both extremes in toxic masculinity.
