Jesse Plemons looks like Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Matt Damon had a baby.
"Will heaven fall upon us? Will the Earth open under us? We don't know. We don't know, for a total eclipse has come upon us." Werckmeister Harmonies is a masterpiece that needs absolutely nothing changed. Every frame is perfect. Every piece of dialogue exact. Vig Mihaly's score and the use of natural sound could not be better. Story is perfect. Images haunting. Every performance necessary and complete.
Time...and time again.
The entire film I kept thinking, why can't more American films take these kinds of risks? I had fairly high expectations and they were exceeded. The way Lowery deals with time and space are magnificent. His framing, his lighting, his pacing was simply refreshing. I feel like Terrence Malick looked at his past few films and then looked at A Ghost Story and just sighed and let out a quite "well fuck," underneath his breath.
