    I have no idea what to do with this film. I liked the first half. I liked the second half. Vincent's performance was one of my favorites of the year.... but I still don't know if I subjectively "like" the film. It's very well-made, but I'll need to see the other international films before I declare this is the best of the bunch.

    Admittedly, the final explanation at the end is completely necessary and causes this film to lose a half star, but I really like the rest of the film. Very nice balance of horror and an exploration of grief. Probably my favorite of Flanagan's films.

    Denis Villeneuve Ranked

    Incredibly realistic portrayal of a mass shooting, almost to the point where I was anxious at my house. While I prefer Denis' elaborate plots and mysteries, this film is cut-and-dry yet still succeeds due to the pure reality of it. Tough watch so come in prepared.

    Huh. I didn't take Denis to be the type.

    This is already a weird story about a series of coincidences leading to an awkward romance. But it's NARRATED BY A TALKING FISH. Again, these early Denis entries are weird and niche and fun but they all pale in comparison to his later works.
