Notes/Media watch for "Never Ever"

From Variety, Venice Film Review: 'Never Ever' by Guy Lodge, ran on Sept. 10, 2016. He writes:

"Dead," however, is not exactly a finite term as the film, simplified but generally faithful in form to DeLillo's novel, follows it into a metaphysical hall of mirrors. (The film makes playful reference to its own medium's capacity for riding and overriding other artforms: "You stole my audience," Laura chides Rey when they meet, before conceding, "There was no audience anyway, it’s not cinema.")
