Female robot voice: Tolerance level replenished. Please proceed further into film hell.
I liked the 'being pushed to madness in confinement' bit, The recreation of a Cold-War Idealist, 'Lenin food requisition cannibalism' Russia, dealing in extreme art-house/expressionism/sensationalism and the gloomy dingy, filthy basement with sewer water to errr... wash with and sometimes... never mind. The monochrome to silver DOP, the jump cuts during the most difficult scenes to watch, make 'Elephant fascinating and sickly so.
And this is the first time I've watched someone give head to a human trachea.
It's so filthy, I kept gagging on my Vanilla Coke. I know most do without the help of the film but I'm just saying.
