«Masterful work. Lyrical, thoughtful, and quite beautifully done.
I initially began to sit uncomfortably through some of the expositionary reveals, and then I realised that they were unforced, and natural in the context.
Near the end I began to search for the intent and purpose, however, and the fact that the film tails away left a disturbing and depressing final impact. The purpose and intent seems to be folded into the heart of the work, defying the paradigm of cause and effect. Here, it works for me, though I was rivetted by the quality of all aspects of this work. The shape and nuances of this piece are not in the mainstream current, and that's neither good or bad, but adds fuel to the lingering question upon completion of "what was this about - really?"
At the end of the day, I don't care. A beautiful and beautifully made film.»
