this is also sort of what i meant when i was talking about endless eight implicating the viewer because when you watch it with gaps in between you basically begin to feel identical to the characters

it can be watched in both ways but i think marathoning it gives a better understanding of what they were attempting to do w/r/t directing because you really begin to pick up on all the subtleties and understand how changing the elements of production design while retaining the same essential form and narrative order can radically alter how something feels

Huh, that is a good point. I guess I will have to rewatch it some day.
