    The first 10 minutes of this are among the best cinema has to offer. I understand art is subjective, but this is a fact and not up for debate.

    "You need to settle down a little"

    A gothic romance, a psychological thriller, a ghost story, and a pitch-perfect comedy. One that demonstrates the push-pull-push of a relationship better than anything I've seen. Exquisitely designed, while still feeling perfectly lurid and a little bit trashy. It simply does not miss a beat. And that sound design. Forget about it. When has the crunch of a piece of toast ever been demonstrated that effectively in film?

    I can appreciate the argument…
