Gunda ★★★★★

how do i even begin?
gunda is thee film of the year.
utterly visceral, intimate, and beautiful.

slow and stirring, it's a slice-of-life film about farm animals in europe.
and what a life it is, 
one that we silence every day...

no score, no narration, no text, 
just gunda
a benevolent mother of eleven.

i laughed.
i cried. 
i couldn’t believe what i was watching.

and when the titular gunda turns to face the camera,
staring us down after the unthinkable?
i felt absolutely filthy. 

truly, a performance for the ages.
best actress goes to gunda,
and best supporting to the one legged-chicken.
