Viewing Notes

My first 10 of the year I think. What I was expecting, and not, at the same time. I loved the sound design, cinematography and editing, in pretty much that order. I’m just as amazed that this is playing in theaters as I was that UNDER THE SKIN got a release. In both cases, I saw the films at Century Boulder which still seems to play these oddities that I’d expect to see at Sie Film Center or the Drafthouse.

Joaquin Phoenix is pretty great in this too.
