IFC, Simon Killer, Antonio Campos and the Boderline's guys, all of them are just awesome. Congratulations! Plus the beautiful Liberal Arts.

Goddamnit. This movie doesn't deserve any distribution, Campos is such a hack and needs to get over Haneke. Corbet's face is so unappealing, doughy and wide and strange. Makes for an off-putting protagonist.
