I really wish they'd decided if we should hear what was being said or if it was meant to be ambiguous. It's frustrating when a movie really plays on the sound as important but you have to turn on the subtitles to actually follow what's being said.

That was grim.

It was a good touch with the two bits of the actual product we see, one has a woman character getting shot in the head, and the other is from a script that apparently involves a professor/student affair.

Julia Garner is great though it must have been exhausting to play so trampled down and demoralized. Matthew Macfedyan's laugh at her ambition to be a producer really landed.
