Such a remarkable achievement. Where to begin? The long-take, lovingly framed visual aesthetic most obviously, but the pans must be stressed as they elongate the space between people, making that area exhaustingly palpable. Film breaks, overexposure, dream imagery, the physicality of the image. Another reason for the long-take: it brings the material world into such sharp relief. Emotion builds curiously, atonally.
Has a few standout scenes, but overall terribly passive and lacking in ambition, cultivating the sort of improvisational-observational style (as banal as life itself!) that's usually only excuse for artistic laziness and a mask for lack of ideas. Not awful by any means, just mostly shallow and contrived, and its nearly DeMillian runtime is inexcusable.
