“I might just skate.”
As resplendent and transcendent as the trailer, which is no small feat. This is a piece of crafted cinema that is never without substance or the perfect sound, be it music or ambience. Every moment works.
My VHS cover pull-quote: “At least watch the trailer. However you feel when you watch that, multiply it by ten. That is how you will feel while watching the actual film. Then multiply that by ten. That is how you will feel thinking back over the movie on your way home from the theater. You might pass out from the emotion. You probably won’t. Because you’re strong. As strong as this film, even.”
