mais🕷’s review published on Letterboxd:
been meaning to see this for a long time so I’m a little late to the party but First Reformed is brilliant nevertheless. I was shocked to realise a lot of people didn’t like how it was shot, it was very well done and added to the atmosphere I think (although, it would’ve been nice in b&w). the writing is incredible and the film is generally just oozing with intensity and complexity. I think it is marvellous but if you’re not really into dark and perhaps slightly slow moving (and dare I say, profound?) films, then maybe this one isn’t for you.
