writer and also director
Happy I saw this with no real expectations or preconceived notions.
Unfortunately, I watched the Director's Cut and the final hour is incredibly shaky. Excited to watch the tighter, shorter version.
The final scene is as glorious as they say. Seeing it on 35MM is even more magical.
Have gotten so used to queer material really favoring explicit content that the conservatism of this short felt like it's strongest quality. It is ROMANTIC. The kiss towards the end is one of the most breathtaking movie kisses I've ever seen. This is the first work I've seen from this director and I can't wait to dig deeper.
