I enjoy a good piece of impressionistic filmmaking from time-to-time. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a film as deliberately sparse as Giants Being Lonely. It saw its premiere in Venice back in 2019, but didn’t see a release in the states until this spring for reasons unclear. Not that this would’ve been a barnburner had it saw a conventional theater-release, but as an unassuming watch in the middle of the afternoon, it takes its time putting its spell on you. By a third of the way through, you’ll know if you have the stamina for its 73-minute runtime. Not everyone will.
