    Don't know why this movie gets so much hate. It wasn't amazing and the ending certainly felt a bit rushed, but still a pretty crazy plot.

    ★★★★

    Overall decent film, but I can definitely appreciate the experimentation with “diegetic” sound. The film alternated from relative closeness with Ruben’s experience to a level of separation (where the experience of the character and the viewer is notably distinct): in some moments, we were given the sound unabridged, just as you would expect in a normal film. But every now and then we’d also hear the sound as it is received by Ruben—muffled, distorted, silent. The sound truly made the film; if it was simply normal sound throughout the film, it might not be more than an interesting character study.

    ★★★½

    Aside from the obvious mirroring of Greek mythology, it was hard to focus on anything but one other aspect: there were literally only two moments of non-anesthetized emotion in the entire film. And, one of them was fake.
