DIREKTIONZ’s review published on Letterboxd:
A very hard watch. Depressing, sad and without any hope. A film not everyone will like. A film some will even hate. It’s slow. It has no plot. It won’t leave your mind.
I can’t really recommend this to anyone. When I first watched that film I wasn’t sure, if I actually dislike it. It never left my mind and I think it’s one of those films that could stick with you for your whole life. If not you will prob at least see a wonderfully made film in nearly aspect. Cinematography, lighting, editing and the script might actually be flawless in my eyes. The acting is fantastic too and the montage scenes are brilliant. I’m a sucker when a film uses silence and just pure acting to show us how a certain character thinks and feels. I love it when characters get conflicted without explaining it the audience through the dialogue. One of the reasons I also absolutely adore “Foxcatcher”.
Give this a chance, I personally absolutely love it and will rewatch it every couple of months no doubt
