CGiii Comment

Perplexing to say the least.

Kudos for the one-take approach...and, for the performances.

The strength of the desired message takes a while...watch through to the very end. When it hits, it hits hard. Then...watch the film again!

Stunning work.

When Paul shows up unannounced, he catches Benny off guard, throwing their first encounter into an agonizing seventeen minutes of posturing, captured in a single take and leading to Paul revealing his true motivation.
