An overpowering and original piece of bravura filmmaking that constitutes one of the most breathtaking and impressive directing debuts in years.

As fine--hard, soft, approachable--as any in movie history.

One of the great films of our time, or any other.

75
A sophisticated, stylish, fast-moving piece of work.
