    ★★★★

    I was 11 when this happened. My mom woke me up really early to get ready for school, probably around 4:30 AM. I don’t think she could sleep. We just sat together, hugging each other and watching the news. I remember asking all these questions she didn’t have answers to. It was one of the first times I felt like no one knew how to talk about things. It was really scary.

    I have loads of problems with this movie but I think it did an accurate job of showing whatever happened. I cried a bunch.

    ★★★★½

    ooooooof, that struck! 

    thick in plot, shrouded in mystery — you have to pay attention to how things unfold, otherwise it’s easy to get lost. a slow boil, which really takes its time to simmer, but you know what? I don’t mind, I was thoroughly enjoying. very character heavy. great ensemble.  also very dark, detached, dry and subtle; feels like the entire movie is wide shots and tinted looks in low lit settings. definitely not my favourite staples when it…

    A critical dud I learnt after watching and thinking highly of this movie. I don’t know, it was what I expected. Goofy, conceptually interesting, also immersed in a genre and tropes I enjoy; maybe I was meant to like it?
