Jake_The_Snake’s review published on Letterboxd:
Creation of art is often associated with pain.
One of the best, most entrancing and fascinating films of the year; unfortunate that it was mismarketed, as it's not really a body horror movie at all, but rather a noir with bodily functions thrown in for good measure. They won't get the recognition, but few performances this year are on the level of Mortensen, Seydoux and Stewart here. The king is back, and he's still got it.
