I should have known you would beat me to it. This essay gives really insightfully addresses how the film delves into intergenerational trauma, vengeance, and the patriarchy.

I had intended to watch this the day I made the post, but got distracted and just now saw it today.

This was fantastic. Perfect slow burn movie with earned twists, its own unique mythology, and great characters. One of my favorite films of the year.
