I’m so glad this lived up to the hype. It’s definitely a slow burn, but the tension builds towards an absolutely breathtaking last act. The performances are very good, Steven Yeun is a standout, and I loved the attention to detail in the script with its use of foreshadowing and metaphors. I don’t think it reaches the masterful heights that Roma does, but it’s easily the next best foreign film I’ve seen all year.
