Four stars for its formal choices alone. Incredible performances by all three actors. Left me, a very emotive viewer, strangely cold compared to, say, Amour, but enjoyed this viewing experience quite a bit.
Maybe my favorite film of NYFF so far. Whether it was intentional or not, feels like the truest tribute to Akerman I’ve ever witnessed. And falls into my favorite category of movies: women wandering alone in unfamiliar locations.
This movie captures the way I felt when I moved to rural America for college and was suddenly surrounded by S P A C E —whether it was a hayfield or a Walmart. It also captures the difficulty of being a pedestrian in these places...valid!
