    i feel like i can't sufficiently talk about this movie without a lot of time and effort, but... whether you look at this as a microcosm for the tragic impossibility of reconciling liberalism with radicalism, or of violence with conscience, or of trauma with forgiveness, or all of the above — as an adaptation of myths as old as time itself through very modern, very real cultural anxieties — as simply a triumph of visual storytelling — it’s as beguiling, enigmatic, complex, challenging, and haunting as cinema can get, and a must watch for anyone who takes this medium seriously.
