A really interesting film. Emotional and frustrating are two words that come to mind. They did a great job at conveying emotion throughout the film and building a frustration for the character of Nicky. There are a couple scenes that haven’t aged great but overall it’s still a fascinating movie. Watched this as part of the prelaunch for Criterion Channel. Excited for that to launch April 8.
