Amazing. After seeing it the first time I wrote: “Probably the perfect movie.” Maybe that’s a bit strong (but maybe not). It is a bit strange that I seem to be the target audience; someone making a movie that is exactly the movie I want to see is pretty much the last thing I would have expected to ever happen.
