Oscar Andersson’s review published on Letterboxd:
I don't really know what to say to give this movie the justice it deserves. An overwhelming first time viewing, rich in themes that it delves into during its 4 hour run time, most of them went over my tiny donkey brained head.
Juxtaposing obscene and moving scenes, this movie has it all.
Yu also has the most wholesome relationship with his friends. They support each other wholeheartedly during the entire movie and it's a nice contrast to all the torment the characters endure. I wish I could join their gang.
