Pretty insane. The only small gripe i have with this movie is the constant thought that this style would've thrived even better in a more abstract or experimental narrative imo. It's not that the narrative here isn't interesting, but it feels like it does restrain the audiovisual style just a little bit, keeping the film from reaching it's absolute full potential.
But other than that this is probably the best movie i've seen this year. There are some moments of absolute genius visceral filmmaking (the skin peeling scene on top), the cast is excellent and the film is uncompromising in pretty much every way imaginable, just the way i like it. A small masterpiece for sure, but i think Brandon can truly ascend into god tier filmmaking if he frees himself from his narrative restraints.
