Kantemir Balagov Russia, 2017

Traum Baum's rating of the film Closeness

A thing of raw intensity, the feature debut of Kantemir Balagov announces a director to keep an eye on. The singularity of his vision is most flagrantly on display in the expressionist use of montage: disrupting the natural movement of sound and image, he reinscribes the image with a new, abstract meaning, reflective of the lead character's deteriorating interior state.
