I described this movie to a friend as “3.5 hours of the egg-frying scene from Big Night,” a longtime favorite of ours. And I do mean it: there’s enough context and insight provided to make the utterly “plain” scenes (in a surface way—they’re also meticulously planned) loaded with drama and meaning. Unlike anything else!
