Karst’s review published on Letterboxd:
It was clear the moment both actors appeared on the screen that this was going to be something special. To put it simply, this is the result of everyone behind the film being on the same page and doing their absolute best. It’s not something where I can pick my favorite aspect, it’s all overwhelmingly good. It was clear throughout the film that this was not the end of this experience, with sounds and images so specific and beautiful that I don’t see them leaving my head anytime soon.
It was clear the moment the credits rolled that this is going to go down as a classic. The campaign to get both Pattinson and Dafoe an Oscar starts now.
