Yes, the age difference is weird but I think the characters end up matching each other in maturity, (one being the youngest child and the other being the older one). The reason age gaps are gross usually is the power dynamics(abuse of power) and I don’t think we have that situation here I don’t see grooming but if you can explain otherwise I am open to listening. Beautiful film, great cinematography(how did they film that dinner scene with Safdie and the other man with the reflection?). A nice story about the taking the long game of love.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
My favorite movie. Uses every aspect of the medium to unsettle the viewer, the acting, music, cinematography, the sets, the point of view(unreliable narrator?), like a great horror movie should. Probably the most analyzed movie ever but don’t bother with the documentaries like Room 237. Just think about what it says to you.
