Such dexterous, controlled filmmaking. Campion draws out endless nuance and tension from a story that on its face could seem quite simple. Bold strokes but flush with layers, complexity. Deftly negotiates point of view. Stunning.
Patient, precise and complex. Thematically rich. Slantwise, idiosyncratic approach to material that might have felt conventional in lesser hands. Lensing, editing rhythms entrance. Throbbingly tactile. So tender, so tough.
