Sometimes this big fair of mild sociopaths and mental impaired people gets too exhausting.It's getting annoying how auteurism, according to modern critical perception, is no longer inferring any afterthoughts through narration, but just through the mere action of putting a freak on display.
I think I wasn't in the mood for this kind of movie, unfortunately. I found it did not often hit notes at all, though there were some special moments that affected me. It felt too-muted for me at least in the holiday season. Oh, well! To each their own.
Wow. A bonafide masterpiece. Mysterious as life itself but brutal and unflinching in its depiction of flawed humanity. Funny, bracing and profound, surprising at every turn and always empathetic of its subjects. A real delight that gets even better upon repeat viewing.
