  • astygianelysium's rating of the film Trans

    A life, and nothing more: Ryan Daugherty's entirely engrossing performance of a child who wanders the world neither thoughtfully nor thoughtlessly is mirrored by the camera, which lingers a second too long on body parts & shards of intimacy. It's rare to see a film resist both cynicism and optimism in favour of being-with the idios of the characters it stumbles across in the swampland.
