    Immensely silly. Visual discoherence sets audience expectations for chaos, not order. And film delivers on that joyously, albeit messily. It's nonsense, and beautiful nonsense at that.

    Chemical Hearts

    ★★

    Take Care by Beach House is played five (5) times in Chemical Hearts' 93 minute runtime. That means it is played approximately once every 18.6 minutes.

    Of my grievances with the film, this is not one of them.
