George Washington ★★★★½

Absolutely beautiful. This film is simultaneously heartwarming and heartbreaking. Through simplicity it seems to capture the essence of humanity. It observes the concept of life and death as both sides of the same coin and embraces it without wanting to understand it. I first saw this quite a while ago and am surprised, upon rewatch, at how vividly its atmosphere and feel are burned into my memory. Nasia’s poetic voiceover and the elegant cinematography lift this film to a transcendent level.
