#snoozefest

This was a boring pointless film that is probably the worst I’ve ever seen. It went nowhere and it was impossible to care what happened. We left after about an hour and weren’t the first to get out

Ambiguous, finely shaded autobiographical dramas like this one don’t generally form the cornerstone of an expanded universe. But Honor Swinton Byrne, making her feature film debut, has created a character who’s complex (and at times maddening) enough to deserve further exploration.

This portrait of the artist as a young film-maker will certainly stand the test of time.

This is an illuminating (self-)portrait of a young artist as well as a mesmerizing chronicle of a consuming, destructive relationship that steadily inches its way under the viewer's skin.
