🐦hell yeah! really really enjoyed this.
the centering of language as a main device (in a few ways) is right up my alley and had my mind stimulated in combination with the fun genre trappings and many many turns of the plot (nearly confused me sometimes, but damn if it wasn't engaging).
there are some great locations here, some classic international crime thriller locations. and I enjoyed the cast a lot too. lots of guys who very much fit into the world, and I mean Catrinel Marlon is, just to be straightforward, very hot.
the bits of dry humor scattered throughout also work well to compliment the pulp.
really just enjoyed the heck out of this. Corneliu Porumboiu is a strong 2 for 2 for me and I definitely need to find a good quality copy of '12:08 East of Bucharest'🐦
