Morton has posted the review now because the film is currently playing in a theatre in New York. The big screen is definitely the ideal venue for this movie, but if you can forgive the heresy of reducing such mesmerizing footage to a mere YouTube clip, here are the film’s first five minutes — just to give you a sense of what has had viewers like Morton and myself so spellbound:
