As always, I'm late to the game, but I watched this last night and I found it, like all his stuff, strange but very compelling. The acting is about as good as it gets, and I definitely felt it. The characters are all very flawed and ambiguous in many of their motivations, which I think is always interesting. Joaquim was almost painfully into that character, and I felt he brought a huge amount of depth and pathos to it. He has always seemed to me to be very in touch with his inner self-loathing. If not, he's even an better actor than I thought.
It's not likely to be a regular rewatcher for me, but it's a very well done piece of work. And how many people can pull in that kind of talent on a project so far off the Hollywood standard playbook?
