    This score is probably gonna change, im still deciding how I feel about this movie. There are some INCREDIBLY high highs, but it’s such a fucking mess lol. The first half or so is pure magic, it’s meticulously constructed chaos, but things definitely do fall apart a bit in the second half. The characters prove to be somewhat one-dimensional, and it doesn’t quite stick the landing it wants to (the ending sequence lost me completely). 

    Curious to see what more…

    Since quarantine began, I've seen a fair number of bizarre movies. Obi-Oba, The Visitor, Inland Empire. But this, THIS is the most batshit fucking crazy movie I have ever seen. This makes Apocalypse Now look like Piglets fucking Big Movie. I was entranced from start to finish.

    How long was it? 5 minutes? 10 hours? Who cares, this movie was jaw-dropping. In spite of the tumultuous production process and ultimately incomplete final product, this is a masterpiece.

    Some of the most bone-chilling sound design I've ever heard. This is an insane directorial debut, but apprenticing under Tarkovsky is practically cheating for learning how to be a great filmmaker lol
