    ★★★½

    Outstanding performances, Alfre Woodard's soulless stare is devastating. Eric Branco's highly stylized and clinical cinematography contributes a unique dimensionality to an otherwise dreary setting- the film navigates the claustrophobic spaces of a prison with surprising flexibility. I do hold the opinion that the film would have been more effective ending at an earlier moment, briefly before the actual ending. Regardless, huge props to Chinonye Chukwu & co. for the craftsmanship on display here.

    What an oddity of a film. Philosophical meandering in the best sense- Liv Ullmann could talk physics to me all day.

    Gorgeous. Enchanting. Masterful.

    I was not prepared to take a seat on Guadagnino's wild summer ride. What an absolute splendid surprise this was.

    Abstracted neuroticism. Teshigahara's complete control of the film's design is as stunning as it is hypnotic. Wow!
