I'm literally tearing up thinking about this. Some exceptionally ugly material conditions and an uglier cultural landscape juxtaposed with sheer, undeniable humanity. No illusions of judgment or redemption, just humans in an ugly place and ugliness in a human place.

Fucked up. Disgusting. Heartbreaking. But still human and beautiful. 

Oh and this poster is awful and certainly doesn’t do the film justice.
