I don't understand why people don't understand this film
28 September 2019 | by perotrachSee all my reviews

It is truly one of the best films to come out recently. It isn't even that hard to understand but I guess good things are always misunderstood at first. The main thing is the writing. It is really first rate. The visuals are good too, but the writing is on another level. I think the dialogue is like a woven piece of cloth. The main character played awesomely by Olin talks about her mind this way, like it used to be an "eleven-dimensional dulcimer" and that's how I feel about the writing in this film. It's a wonderful dulcimer of a movie.
