Transcendent cinema, absolutely acumen, it took an abundance and restraint to get through, but upon my 3rd attempt I can safely say that yes, I have watched this film and yes, it is a masterpiece. A mature piece of filmmaking that'll rattle you to your core, no doubt.

It follows a mother as she engages in sex work, daily chores, and a sad descent into utter madness, the whole film is handled with such un-animosity, a mishap with cutlery is treated like murder, so rooted in reality, so intelligent, I will take this film to my grave.
