glad shabana was in this because idk if i would have watched it otherwise, and i really liked it...a tenderly & beautifully made horror, works hard to not look like a netflix original movie and thank god. most of the criticism seems to be about a weak narrative which i guess is fair, but this is primarily about emotion and the pain and fear and sadness came across perfectly to me, and the dark rainy atmosphere was enough to carry them. especially loved the unexpectedly weird and dreamy final 20 minutes!
when i say i would die for my daughter, it doesn't only mean i would give her a vital organ or make her drink the last of the water in a desert or take her place in front of an oncoming speeding vehicle or pull her out of a burning building. it also means i will die thousands upon thousands of small deaths - i watched the seconds of my life tick slowly away as i endured the mind-numbing boredom…
