Great review - I'm really eager to see this one this weekend.

Oh my God you have no idea how happy I am to read this. Ever since I saw (and loved) this at Cannes, I've been praying that I would end up with these corners of the internet on my side - or, failing that, at least taking the time to engage with the film in a way that way too few people did or have.

Matt - Despite the fact that it's a work destined to polarize, I'm also somewhat surprised so many have outright dismissed it. I saw it first thing Monday morning, wrote this review in the hour immediately after the screening ended, and haven't been able to get the film out of my head since.

(Solid Cannes coverage over at the House, btw)

Nick - Thanks. Just try having the beautiful damn thing stuck in your head since May, not knowing when you'll get to see it again.

I get to see this one in the next two weeks when it opens in my area (missed all the press screenings of it, much to my chagrin) and I absolutely cannot wait a second longer to be honest.

Still waiting on an Australian release date for this one.

Finally saw it, finally loved it. Great film indeed.
