Thanks to Joaquin Saavedra for getting me to finally watch this, because this was as great as I'd hoped. The direction was incredible, the camera movements added so much energetic precision to the pacing and tone, and the story was super interesting. The whole film I was thinking about Synecdoche, New York, and it ended up having very similar story aspects, kinda in the way that Winter Light is basically the predecessor to First Reformed. Definitely need a rewatch already but it was very good on my initial viewing.
