On every level — writing, acting, direction, cinematography, music, and more — this is a masterwork. A tour de force, emotionally involving, funny and stabbingly sad at the same time. (No, stabbingly is not a word, but I had to make it up to describe this film, so now it’s a word.)

All at once, everybody here is a villain and everybody here is a human. It looks like home video, moves like a play, and speaks its dialogue like a novel. 

This is a fantastic late entry for our Best of the Decade lists.
