I haven't been this totally immersed in such a complex contempoary drama in what seems like a while. I'm at a bit of a loss. I fucking LOVE the pace of the film and really do not understand how people could find it ungainly. I was totally absorbed the whole and never felt its plotting was distractingly arhythmic. Lonergan's sense of how to film New York is incredible. I think the only complaint I have is that the bus crash is a bit hokey (until the event is over and we're dealing with its aftermath, that is). Beyond that, great, great stuff.
