nad 🔪’s review published on Letterboxd:
i still have issues with some of the logistics and physics which this merely skips over. wouldn’t consider them plotholes but there’s a couple things i find should be thematized (note, i don’t mean be explained) more properly when you have a film this long.
that said, wow. a rewatch was much needed after my feverish experience from last week’s double feature because while i loved what the film stood for i was also rather disappointed with a lot of choices that were made. and obviously pissy cause i wasn’t feeling well. this time i could get behind it much better. spent the first 30 minutes and the entire last hour crying and i thought i’d never stop. especially holding in the heavy sobs at the end kinda broke me. never feels like three hours until all the battles are fought. then you’re suddenly as weary in your chair from over a decade of emotional investment as these guys are. they can rest now, and so can i for a while.
