Certainly charts its own course. If anything, sound and framing are too studied, story too opaque, but I dig what it's up to.
Portrays anhedonia without producing a strictly anhedonic experience. That's a feat, and palette and framings are unique. Grim auteurism, aestheticizing poverty nothing new, though.
