    Quite possibly the most important piece of cinema in my life.

    Through middle and high school, I'd obsessively watch movies. Whichever ones I could get my hands on. I made, probably, thousands of lists now lost to old journals and word docs that I can't return to. Thank god Dylan at that age didn't have Letterboxd to augment that obsession, I might've held the record on LB for most lists on the site.

    There was a problem with me binging…

    I’m afraid I just blue myself up.

    Massive and magical.

    Started off on an awkward foot for me but quickly fell into its rhythm and style. To be honest, by the end, even though this is one of the most visually and cinematically astounding things I've seen in a while (especially for a newer release) it felt more novelistic in its over-narrated plot, maybe even more symphonic in pace and use of music. It was relaxed in its fantasy and romance, but it never made either any…

    At the beginning we fly through train tunnels looking ahead at where we're going. The darkness of a tunnel turns into lush green light in a moment of exhilaration. Here, two young adults will start a relationship that will be the foundation for the rest of the movie.

    At the midpoint we view the trains and the tunnels from the back, watching the tunnels and riparian pass by. The couple has moved to a new stage in the relationship that…

    A radio, a flashlight, a picture, a knife, a voice recorder, a school uniform. This film is so detailed that even objects in this movie have arcs. Characters have arcs in arcs. Multiple arcs overlap and play out at the same time. Basically every character has an arc to some penance or redemption. It somehow feels too big to be kept to only four hours but at the same token shouldn’t be any longer. Idk if you could make a…

    Campion continues her streak of brilliance. Forming a character and a world so harrowing without even showing the worst of it. We see the wolfs jaws from afar. Every performance in the picture is pitch perfect. Will (SilentDawn) on twitter said that Cumberbatch was channeling his inner Lee Marvin here and I couldn't think a better comparison for his rugged, dark persona than that. Kirsten Dunst continues to be one of the best actors of the past 25 years. Jesse…
