    Evergreen! So great. Also, discovered a sneaky PTA connection.

    It's almost like a parody. The director had a basic idea (let's tell a story about the decay of Hungary before WWI through the eyes of a female protagonist in a Raymond Chandler-esque detective story) but unfortunately he only knows how to do tracking shots of a woman walking into places. Seriously, there's only one shot this guy likes to use, so he does it again and again until you're utterly sick of it... then he does it for two…

    Imbued with an evil darkness so palpable that it makes "Blue Ruin" and "Green Room" look like kids' movies.

    I know I just finished watching it half an hour ago but I’m pretty sure it’s an unforgettable achievement. I’m glad I don’t have any aspirations to make movies because if I did, I’d probably be giving up on them right about now. Fucking stupendous, I’m not sure I can even watch any more films at this fucking festival after this. Insanely good.
