This movie really flipped my opinion on Ultra.
I was starting to think the idea of doing a sequel was a real bust. So many ultra films have required me to understand the original film intimately, and the result has been a very masturbatory year for the competition.
This film is no exception, but I kind of liked that about it, because I get the feeling this film was gonna be intense and obscure anyway, and adding the fact that there's a whole other movie I need to see on top of that really created this surreal experience.
Pushing teams to do sequels really encourages a new kind of creativity, and I think this film was a really great example of this.
