    Since it’s an LLC, that means Hell House has an EIN and articles of organization

    Great storytelling that provoked lots of discussion. Unlike any courtroom drama I’ve ever seen. 

    The last act’s twist didn’t bother me too much, since it cleared room for the slowly building central choice of the film: mom or dad?

    Maadi is so good.

    What a singular masterpiece.

    I've never seen any movie that has quite this look, and few movies that have such a distinct one; after seeing it long ago as an undergrad at my school's International Cinema I always remembered that car wending across dusty yellow and brown roads.

    On second watch I love it more.

    Slow but never boring. A great portrait of human despair, unencumbered by details unique to the individual. A feeling of dread builds as the movie progresses. The ending forces me to assume the perspective of a parable. Kurd, Afghan, Turk. Soldier, seminarian, teacher. Burial and resurrection.

    Neat. Maybe I’m tired of incel protagonists though
