    ★★★★½

    It's hard for me to fully intellectualize what makes this film so great but I will try my best.
    At surface level, it's a fairly simple film about a fairly simple story. Even while watching the film nothing stood out to me, it was only until the end credits hit that I was left in awe of what I had just watched. Everything plays out slowly and methodically yet I wasn't bored for a second.
