First 45 minutes are quite possibly the greatest first act I've seen in any film. Also the final act is also one of the best I've seen. I know I'm coming back to it again soon because I'm sure I'll love it even more next time. Seriously what a fucking film.

    Bleak, powerful, depressing. As Godard aptly put it, this film is the world in an hour and a half. The donkey gives one of the best performances of all time.
