Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles ★★★★½

this is a goddamn horror movie. it really is. i didn’t think i’d be able to watch all 3.5 hours of this in one sitting but i did because it’s one of the most tense films ever made. an hour in, my mom walked in and got sucked into the experience as well. everything about delphine seyrig’s performance and chantal akerman’s direction crawls into your psyche and then just sits there, and we’re left feeling unsettled as hell. absolute masterpiece that i cannot imagine rewatching for a long time.
