    It's hard to judge him for being a creepy old man when that boy's hair is just so fabulous. 6 months 3 weeks ago

    Well, I found this pretty captivating. Every shot feels like a painting, painstakingly composed and colored just for the audience. Some scenes, particularly the flashbacks, drag a bit. But I was still mesmerized by the protagonists search for beauty/love as the camera forces you to take this journey with him. Simultaneously enchanting and uncomfortable, both precise and vague, this film demands your attention. 4 years 9 months ago
