Twitter Capsule: Eats its tail, then its head, then its tail again. A bit willful with its tropes, but also bold and achy with them.

VOR:   Film cultivates a cult aesthetic that almost guarantees its minorness, and some of its experiments are scaffolded on generic conventions. But the risks it takes are big risks.
