    Seeing this on film the way it was meant to be exhibited has convinced me this is one of the greatst films about doomed love and the inevitable annihilation that is the result of pursuing it ever made. It is a moody expressionistic masterwork, which, despite its narrative essentialism, feels more operatic and expansive than 99% of contemporary American Blockbusters.

The MCU is now a franchise that has totally abandoned any semblance of narrative structure replacing it with nothing more than endlessly trite exposition and tedious unfunny bathos. This is barely even a movie. Nothing has its own emotional context, there is zero tension or heightening…
