Having a hard time putting my thoughts together about this one, but definitely very glad I watched it.
I feel like it would have been so easy to miss it's existence entirely, but then I was randomly scrolling through Hulu (which isn’t I’m in the habit of doing) and decided to try it out.
Though maybe wobbly at times (especially with some dialogue and character stuff) and never really dramatically subverting any expectations of the genre, this film still had a very self-assured voice and commitment to its vision. There’s something intangible about it that seemed really special, despite the flaws. I’m not even sure how to put a finger on it. Felt like stumbling on a true gem.
And the vibes were 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼
Definitely very eager to see what Albert Shin does next. Feel like he could end up being one of my favorite up-and-coming directors for sure.
OH YEAH. Right. THE SCORE. Maybe one of my favorite scores in any movie, ever. Seriously. Loved it.
