I don't particularly like the idea of using stars to rate this film, or really any film that takes risks. That being said, to this day I have yet to find another film that creates an atmosphere of uncertainty while simultaneously combining curiosity and dread. I think they key word here would be 'experience'; the experience of watching this film is unique... unfamiliar, imagine flying to another part of the country, at least 2 hours out of your timezone and only being able to understand what is directly in front of you when you get off the plane, you speak the language, use the currency, and probably have at least a rough understanding of the area, and yet one cannot help but feel out of sorts. Not to say the film is tone deaf, in fact this film has a very consistent tone throughout, unfamiliar yet enticing. This is why I feel the film is so difficult for many to accurately review, it hits all the marks of what I think should be considered to be an excellent film, but almost all in ways that still manage to make those marks feel foreign to the viewer.
