Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Ain't Them Bodies Saints ★★★★

''I haven't slept in four years. And I'm tired. I'm so goddamn tired.''

My short and curly thoughts:

I cannot understand the overwhelming ambivalence toward this fine and perfectly measured debut from David Lowery. The narrative is powerful and engaging throughout, the cast from the smallest support to the meatiest role are on their A-game. The score is delicate and memorable and the cinematography is slightly Malickian without aping him. I was in like Flynn from go to woe and it's so close to a 4.5/5 it's not even funny.

Do not believe the un-hype, this film is the tits!
