    I love it when a director knows how to naturally, subtly induce tension and unease, and Kitty Green absolutely has the vision. Right away, with no indication of anything to outright warrant it, you immediately feel the discomfort Julia Garner's character is mired in. Everything is so mundane but also so loaded with the air of mistreatment from every side, it almost creates a positive feedback loop that makes things feel even worse. This simplicity makes some of the biggest…

    This had 5 star potential, I was in love with the first half. The suspense, the discomfort, the mood, the dialogue, I was unbelievably hooked. Then it's like the movie tripped walking down a hill and just started tumbling faster and faster. The mood started to break, the fascinating became the nonsensical, the pretention reared its head, and then poof: nothing. It totally and completely lost me. I can't overstate my disappointment. At least the filmmaking itself was good I guess.

    Jessie Buckley is astounding though, please put her in more movies
