    I think Greydanus said a few weeks back that it was the first great film of the year. Though comments on this film are few and infrequent, they’ve all been nothing short of heralding. I’ll have to see if it’s playing around here.

    I’ve been waiting months for this film. I only hope it shows up on a screen down here in the Bay Area.

    I look forward to reading your review, Jeffrey.
