    I know most people champion this film’s effort to not take itself too seriously. Personally, I think a little more seriousness could have helped. 

    Still entertaining, but when it goes over the top, it really does.

    There are some really effectively creepy scenes in this, and Diop does a great job of establishing the vibe and backdrop. Yet the movie suffers from a real lack of conflict.

    Took a while for me to get around to this film. Now that I’ve seen it, I can imagine that for 24 year, it seemed like an interesting political satire set in some kind of scary alternate universe.

    And then it really happened. Jesus Christ.

    I find myself wanting to go up to random people in the street just to talk about this film with them, as I’ve exhausted talking to myself about it. Haven’t felt this way about a film since Social Network.
