This film is so "meh". Still trying to find that line of historical accuracy vs. making an entertaining film. Gary Oldman did a great job, but there weren't any Old White guys to play this part?
A serious film about grief and existentialism featuring a man covered in a bed sheet with holes cut into it for his eyes sounded like it would be a huge disaster. David Lowery delivered a truly epic film and wasn't afraid to use moments of unconventionally long silence to convey the tone and feeling of what it may be like experience loss of a loved one. The square aspect ratio throughout the film creates a feeling of claustrophobia. The subtle camera movements and how passage of time was depicted was brilliant.
