    Safdie Brothers Journey #38

    Extremely calculated chaos.

One of the most complex films in existence about every layer of love, life, and feeling. As if the entire moving soul, beauty, and sadness of art captured verbatim with a 1,000-words, yet still all each subtle and speechless like a daunting piece of work was…
