I'm kind of all over the place with this one. Part of me wants to say it's his best film (even though that's not saying much coming from me) but I'm not sold on how a lot of this turns out. Need to rewatch asap, though, and maybe I'll write more.
what can I even say
I don't cape for sono much but every time I watch a new film of his I just fall in love. he's pretty much the polar opposite of the types of films I usually like most but god damnit how can you not love some of the stuff he does. absolute madman in the flesh.
and shoutout to ami tomite & ariko tsutsui for their performances. jesus christ. really wasn't expecting that from either of them.
the lonely dreamy iwai haze is back <3 his visuals have really become next level. I've never seen someone use so much hand-held and wide angle lens like he does.
I've been sitting here for like an hour trying to type something about how this film made me feel but I just keep deleting what I've written. it's a good thing though. this was special.
