Son of Saul, 2015 - ★★★★½

Having spent the last few days watching quite a few traditional horror films I'm not sure if my brain really knew how to process this realistic horror. Considering how tired I was, the fact that I was kept fully alert and engaged throughout speaks volumes. It took the drive home to begin to appreciate what I'd just seen. Harrowing seems like the most suitable word to use but I think that only begins to cover things.

As a side note, a brief conversation after the film has made me realise that normally over the next few days my opinion would really form but because I'm in the middle of a film festival and seeing 4 other films tomorrow will I get chance to form my true opinion.
