comrade_yui’s review published on Letterboxd:
complete sensual overload, so good and immediately tactile that it becomes actually difficult to watch without bursting into tears or falling into a delirious trance. aside from the keep, this is easily mann's weirdest and most erratic tale of two damaged individuals trying to transcend their social limitations by grappling with their own spiritual weaknesses. every sequence in this is laced with a legitimate courting of danger and abyssal chaos that the film barely avoids falling into completely. mann's early-career portrayal of the dialectic between chimerical & physical domains has never felt so vivid or palpable.
