    I wasn’t as affected by this as other of Apichatpong’s work but still found it worthwhile. A fantastic story but something about his slow cinema approach drags more than usual.

    The closing sequence into the final shots were breathtaking.

    Truly a modern horror classic.

    Equal parts Bergman, Lynch, and Tarkovsky, Eggers really masters his craft here. Incredible performances from Pattinson and DaFoe, with stunning B&W 35mm cinematography that really utilizes its aspect ratio to convey a specific state of paranoia.

    I was ecstatic from the moment this started and I can’t wait for a rewatch.
