Boy, Adam Mason is one bleak bleak dude.
Absolutely believe the hype. I don't casually throw around the term Masterpiece, but this fits the bill and then some. The filmmaking feels both impeccably controlled and energetically spontaneous- dizzying, poetic, and meaningful in every frame. The story is both timely and classic, heartbreaking and hopeful. Jenkins infuses his beautiful images and complicated characters with more heart and understanding than most filmmakers could ever muster. Gorgeous to look at and intense to experience, this is one you definitely cannot miss.
