Certain Women ★★★★

Certain women or certain women? Naturally it's both and the way Reichardt fleshes out and reinforces the genius duality of film's title through in every single frame, scene, and line of dialogue is inspiring. Certain Women is so satisfying as it shows just how much Reichardt has matured as a storyteller.

There really isn't a single moment of this movie that feels out of place or untrue. I was particularly struck on rewatch by how precise the editing is and how it works to create a distinct rhythm that emphasizes the unique isolation that the characters experience and the way they seek out connection from people who cannot or will not reciprocate.
