Simone’s review published on Letterboxd:
Okay...so... that was one of the most harrowing film experiences of my life. Right up there with Irreversible and Tyrannosaur. I can't say that I enjoyed this film, but I definitely recognize why people love it so much. The philosophies touched upon and the way in which Johnny speaks make the film feel like it's transcending reality into some other realm. I don't think this film can be classified by the descriptors we've all used in the past to put a film in context with its peers. This one seems to stand alone in my mind as the only film I've seen that seems to be about the entirety of human nature even though it's just focused on one guy. It's fascinating, so I'll revisit it again sometime soon.
