Ave’s review published on Letterboxd:
I watched this over the course of like four days so can't exactly muster up the critical analysis that this film probably deserves, but it's excellent. The eye-popping, texturized cinematography and Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix's terrifyingly flawless performances are the highlights. Life's hardships vanquish or worsen at praise or criticism from others; repetition of process becomes a dreadful piece of existence but also the only thing we can cling on to. Fascinating stuff (also my first PTA film).
