One of the most stunning black & white contemporary films I've ever seen. From the extended tracking shots that captures real-time scenes to a score that makes you feel like shit in a good way. No matter if the "whale" or "the prince" are representations of external "entities" that disrupt social order, I have to see this film several times to really "read" that, this was a wonderful cinematic experience. There's no need for meaning or explanation to truly appreciate good filmmaking. The opening sequence? Wow... Ok. I'm done.
