I don't know what this genre is called, but I'm a sucker for it. Dream-like narrative that takes place in a strange dream world. Decayed opulence is always more interesting to look at than brand-shining-new opulence. A+ for casting, production design, costumes, makeup and sound design. The cracked walls and dirt-filled room are a loving nod to Tarkovsky.
Pretty easy to see where Leos Carax gets a lot of is influence for 'Pola X' with this film. I didn't find it as engaging as Bartas's previous efforts but maybe that's because I felt like the others had more richness in the context of post-soviet eastern European conditions. The homage references to Tarkovsky as usual are done with the utmost respect and doesn't feel like he is blatantly lifting off of him.
