Twitter Capsule: Boldest shredding I've seen here of cinematic form, story flow. Death and the Maiden as punk Moroccan cherry bomb.

VOR:   Frankly, it's an agitating sit, but the visual and tonal mannerisms that make it hard to put up with are also pretty daring. Hard to overstate how bold this is in Moroccan context.
