I didn’t know how to feel about when watching this, but I really want to get back to it again. Its visuals are bananas and kept me hooked, but what I struggled with was the two main characters. Liliom is horrible, and in the end the film obviously doesn’t disagree, but I kept feeling like it was heading towards a place of understanding that I was having a hard time getting to. Julie is far more interesting and I think the biggest flaw of the film not focusing on her even more than it does.
