    There is so much you can unpack from this film. It's 3 hours of slow, calculated story and character building in a way that leaves you almost hungover by the end. There is so much gold hiding in plain sight that forces you to pay attention or you’ll miss it. And you don’t wanna miss it. Hamaguchi takes his time getting you to the destination of this film but it's absolutely worth the scenic route there.

    Who knew Mister Rogers was going to wipe away my 27 year old daddy issues in just 90 minutes.
    Happy 2022!

As a woman, this was certainly no easy watch. I love that Ridley created this in the rashomon structure. It really drives home the overwhelming theme that the truths of women, especially then but still ringing true now, go horribly unjust.

    The ending of this film is astounding. It is…
