    Feel like I "got" this way more than last time. The restoration helps a ton. Happy to have my senses assaulted like this all day, week, month, year.

    People talk about this like it's some weird, inscrutable piece of outsider art, and while some of that may be true, I feel like it takes incredible filmmaking chops to wring any atmosphere out of Utah at all, let alone this much.

    Obviously not out yet - it's still filming. Just logging it because I was an extra in it last night and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Like. Matthew Libatique looked at me. What the fuck. I could very well not even make it into the final cut but I'm still extremely excited to see how it turns out.
