    For better or for worse, he's basically a novelist who makes films, and I think the length and pacing of his films derives from this. Of the four that I've seen, however, only Poetry seems to me a...

    I'm not objecting to the scene itself but the reflexive recourse to "ambiguity" as a means of defusing the criticism of it when there's nothing to suggest that the film's narration is unreliable....
