Liv’s fourth-wall-breaking monologue expositions get a little tedious, though framing the story through her is a critical element admittedly. I wish I could understand more the final segment, the woman’s, though I understand the penultimate one, the man’s, too well perhaps. Certainly there is much to unpack in the exchange about the role of the artist after the puppet show. Some freaky camerawork (spinning around an insane dinner table, then moving into a wide shot of a library), and dramatic use of deep shadow and blown out unnatural daylight (in particular the straight-down shot of the water surface over the sinking boy).
