    Jarmusch continues to be an undefinable director. With every new movie of his that I watch, I feel the vast oceanic expanse of his filmmaking grow within me. I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't a single bad movie in his discography, and even more impressive if every movie is a standout success.

    I saw this in a theater last night for the first time and Mr. Wiseau himself was there and it was a transcendent experience.

    This movie just blew me the fuck away. This may be my favorite soundtrack to any movie. I've seen a lot of excellent cinema lately, and aside from Raw, this is just a transcendent level of art. It's as distinct sonically as its visuals are. The only word I can think of to reasonably describe this movie is intoxicating, but I can't help but feel like that the word doesn't quite manage to illicit the same feeling as this film. This is wholly unique, hypnotic, captivating, and bloody fucking brilliant.
