Like any other film by the director, i found the physicality and the total "shape" of the film haunting, but this time unlike (my favs) "Sound Barrier" and "Marathon", it goes too high, with those distracting vertical shots of the mountain, rather than staying close to the tangible materials that it shapes into the film marvelously.
