Maybe you can't watch all of Zulawski's films. I know that this is my 7th film, and I was a bit overwhelmed by the manic energy and craziness. I'm also not sure I like the role that women play in his movies. There's an awful lot of commonality that makes them seem repetitive. He has to keep raising the stakes, and this might be the peak of crazy. I still maintain that Possession is a masterpiece.
