    This is a lot to take in. First take away is the amazing cinematography, the close-ups, the weird sense of unease but also comfort. It all invites the viewer to try to decode these images, the more intriguing they get.
    I felt the movie sort of deflated by the end though, especially after a very indulging scene where Bergman just repeats the same scene we just watched except from a different angle, because... reasons? Thats where it goes over the…

    Thrilling, tense and funny in all the right amounts, with subtle and smart anti-establishment nods, this movie was a blast. You can see its influence on so many movies after - the most recent one i'd compare to is Uncut Gems, in the way it combines nail-bitting energy with intimate character moments.
