    I returned from a multi week road trip this weekend, which was a blast but also exhausting and didn't leave too much time for keeping up here, so this is my first review in a while. And it's a hell of a movie to have to review.

I don't really have a lot to add despite my last review being pretty short. This is just great, atmospheric as hell and thoroughly engaging. I might even bump this up next time, who knows.
