karsten’s review published on Letterboxd:
Man, I really don't know. Similar to 'Faces', this shit is just so hard to get through. Took 4 breaks just to do something else for a few minutes. I really really hate saying things like this but I appreciate films like this more than I enjoy watching them. This thing is oozing with talent. Some of the best acting I've ever seen coupled with amazing direction and don't even get me started on the cinematography. I'm a fool for thinking I can get through his 5 films (the Criterion stuff) in a month. Works like this are meant to be thought about with time until I'm ready to dive back into something that raw. I really did love this movie but I can't emphasize how happy I was when it was over.
