This is certainly weird, but it’s a superb film. Julia Docournau executed the film phenomenally well, bringing in a heart wretched theme to an unearthly story. The first half was surreal, however, after that it got emotional. And, man oh man the vibes of the cinematography is just pure chef kiss. Additionally, the score and soundtrack are amazing (tears was dripping down when Light House by Future Islands played T-T). In all, the film is gripping and it’s surely worth a watch, heck I skipped my lesson writing just for this.

The building used to be his home, a place where memories were made, and a community was built, but to experience the demolition of a place dear to you, nay dear to the city of Phnom Penh is heartbreaking.

Matt Reeves, can we have a Two-Face/Holiday/Alberto Falcone/Catwoman/Batman story in The Batman sequel? Thank you! Two-Face a villain? or is he an Anti-Hero? Gotham is all about corruption and justice, and the past these villains hold onto. The past is their present.

I would really love to see Harvey in Reeve's Batman. (This review is not much on the film)
Beautifully crafted gem. A satisfying looking film that reminds me of Tarkovsky's cinematography. The theme has a sense of Kiarostami in it, i.e. a theme of life, death, friendship. In addition to gentle suspense, and a simplistic plot. In all, First Cow is a wholesome film that you would feel cosy watching in a cold weathered season, with the fireplace lighting up.
