Earrings ★★★½

Alex Withrow's debut Earrings is one of the finest examples of visual storytelling I've seen. We follow young woman who is falling deeper and deeper into despair and grief. Because there is very little dialogue in the movie it keeps us guessing as for the reasons for her suffering and the reveals are very subtle. While there are certain scenes that could have been shorter and the style the director choce doesn't give us much to sympathize with the main heroine fully, the film is very understanding and haunting portrayal of grief. It's finest moment is definetly brilliant sequence with the haunting use of "How to Disappear Completely" by Radiohead.
