A feral display of documentary techniques in service of a truly nightmarish dystopian vision. This feels white knuckle-terrifying at every turn. Bulging eyes, sweat everywhere, the landscape and film grain rough like sandpaper, the whole film resembles a cigarette burn. Immediate, visceral and, unfortunately, as timely as ever. Finally crossing this off the watchlist was as thrilling, and affecting, as I had hoped.
