    It’s not my favorite of his but it might be his most impressive. Wide angle camera shots are breath taking, every shot is a work of art. The pacing felt at times reliant on the beauty of each shot, which at times made the narrative telling seem uneven. 

    The world building is his best. unlike GBU, you don’t feel like you are just running into other people’s zones (like war and priesthood). instead you have the entire map of the movie in your head and are almost living it as it plays out, which might be an argument for the long, drawn out beauty shots.
