    This was a pretty damn delightful comedy with some stellar casting. My favorite thing is that it rarely or maybe never felt mean spirited and that it let these actors just shine.

The deliberate sparseness felt frustrating, forced, and tedious at times and utterly beautiful at others. I guess it’s challenging like poetry in that way. I also wish I never knew anything about the film coming in because I saw a trailer and read a synopsis and that already left me expecting straight folk horror. But the folk horror was truly…
