A Matter of Life and Death ★★★★★

I've never seen anything quite like this.

I went in cold, just choosing to view based on its presence on 'best of' lists. From the first conversation between a doomed pilot and the radio operator, I was hooked.

Fascinating mix of love war theology fantasy nationalism and other nice words.

It surprised me multiple times with set ups I perceived to be common tropes.

The special effects were at times quaint and at others seemed extraordinary.

An absolute treat that I can't stop thinking about. And open to many interpretations.
