And then we spend another 7 minutes before he finally says, "I should call the doctor." Followed with another poorly framed and weirdly static shot of him talking to his daughter ceaselessly.



I'm not sure what my review would have been if I only watched for 20 minutes, but watching the entire movie I agree with the endless praise of this excellent movie. I also agree with this movie being one of the very finest of 2012.

On a side note, I thought Ebert's review was not only spot on, but thought his last paragraph on this movie was Ebert at his finest.

I will miss his reviews.
