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

This film is the best reason I can think of for why cinema exists. It is impossible to describe the feeling this film creates inside you without actually spending the 3 hours and 20 minutes watching it. It is a film that despite being so simple overwhelms me in terms of thoughts and emotions. It is a film full of questions and very few answers. It is brilliant and terrifying at the same time. It is everything you think it might be and also so much more. For some, it will be the most boring film that has ever existed and for some it will be life changing.
