Clouds of Sils Maria ★★★½

I read some reviews which were fantastic, and I don't feel I have much that is useful to add. I was a bit gobsmacked to realize how much Binoche now looks like the Isabella Rosselini of my own youth. To realize, again, and every day, just as this character does, that I'm the older part now, no matter what lies I tell myself or who I think I'm seeing in the mirror. It's daunting.

In case my rating is unclear, while I found deep meaning in the themes of the plot and dialogue, I did find the pacing off from time to time and there were a few too many whiffs of pretention.
