Meaty masterpiece

I love this kind of head-on assault with the human condition in all its ultra-depressing glory. Very contemporary although set in the 50's. Very "american beauty' but 10 years more maturity from Mendes.
Leonardo and Kate show true artistry - intensely imploding and exploding. Lots of nervous laughter when the lights came on - definitely touching some late-capitalism, late-relationship nerves and managing to stir up some existential questioning. A juicy lamb shank.
