Reviews and Quotes 2

"One of the strangest artifacts of cinema history...no other film has affected fashion as deeply."
— Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

"A GORGEOUS
PUZZLE BOX OF A MOVIE!"
— Mark Harris, The New York Times

"The movie is what it is - a sustained mood, an empty allegory, a choreographed moment outside of time, and a shocking intimation of perfection."
— J. Hoberman
