    S/o to Ellen Kuras for her camerawork in both this and Bamboozled, two of the most beautifully (& truly) chaotic films I think I've ever seen.

    Spike the mf 🐐 !!

    ★★★★½

    Extended Cut

    Actually can't get over the fact that Q’orianka Kilcher was 14 years old while shooting this film?!? Her performance here feels monumental and is surely up there with some of the best of the past 20-odd years.

    I had to pick my jaw up off of the floor about five times during the first 20 minutes alone. Like nothing I have ever seen before.

    what we knew in the forest.
    It's the only truth."

    Death Note

    ★★★

    Wolff, Qualley and Stanfield having such a blast, I could've easily watched two more hours of them in these roles 😤👌🏻

    Final few moments unfortunately ruin the seemingly effortless rhythm this movie manages to operate in for over 90 minutes.

    (I honestly feel like I'm underrating this.)
