    As with Drive My Car, Sartre and Bataille’s short stories, and other cultural content of this intimate-absurd-mundane genre, what I love about this film are the moments in which its characters engage in conscious artifice and pretend, and the longing for someone else while with the body of another β€” where sometimes that someone else we long for is ourselves. What I also love about this and Drive My CarΒ is the sordid, abject intimacy, the delight in memory slippage, the profundity of disconnect, and the endless narrative non-sequiturs.

    Dry, absurd and mesmerising.
