Sublime in every way and constantly enthralling. Brilliant, beautiful acting from the leads and wonderful direction.

If nobody had been so adamant about making this film "about" Diane Arbus, it would be a perfect story about how an uncommon woman, living in the lap of luxury and perfection, discovers her own capability to see beyond the shape of things and If nobody had been so adamant about making this film "about" Diane Arbus, it would be a perfect story about how an uncommon woman, living in the lap of luxury and perfection, discovers her own capability to see beyond the shape of things and boredom that privilege means. Unfortunately, Trying to impose a good fairy tale on the personality of a real, talented woman who obviously never believed in such fairy tales, judging from the raw unsentimentality of her work is a huge mistake. Take out all the allusions to Arbus' photography (and the snail pacing at the beginning) and the movie works like a charm. Expand

Sublime. At the moment, film makers are ahead of film criticism.
