Emotionally paralyzed tableau of gay trauma. Willfully lonely and hermetically self-isolated. Great acting and well made but ugh. Sorry Andrew, not down for a wallow this go round.
A devastatingly potent deployment of weaponized sound design.
The formal concept is remarkable. The way the thermal-cam “fairy tale” challenges the death grip of the overall aesthetic is transcendental.
Cinematic superlatives feel both deserved and icky here. I spent a good deal of time wondering if maybe the whole thing isn’t just too damn aesthetic.
