Perfect is a lame word to describe this movie, but what else fits? Who has such meticulous, rhythmic pacing in their films? Never a second wasted. Who else can make the unconventional be so understandable? I read enough things about Subiela to know that he was good, but wasn't expecting such a high achievement.
