The gap between 4 and half star and 4 star a lot closer than the gap between a 4 star and a 3 and half imo

    Crazy stuff , really what can you say but evil will prevail. Yuri and his motivations really jus going beyond cold hard capital. It's a sense of nilhism that allows him to play a cog in this dangerous ass game.

    Actually fucked seeing this is the way world is. The sirection did its stuff, plot did it's stuff, visuals did it's stuff.The intro with the bullet perspective view is an amazing way to start. Along with the narrative elements from yuri helps keep it chugging well. Sadisticly sick stuff all round, I almost feel filthy for enjoying it.

Chronicling his life spent trying to understand reality, while continually paralleling this with the banality of the world in which he inhabits. Aspects of the plot reflects the analogy from “On Exactitude in Science” (co-opted by Baudrillard…
