«Incredible Ben, you truly are a brilliant movie maker.»
It Always Rains on Tuesday
«Well that was bloody superb. Loved everything about this film, from the clean, crisp visuals and amazing effects to the brilliant narration by yourself and the perfectly eerie soundtrack by Jesse Pringle. The sound design was also a joy to behold. Aside from some overly loud sound effects drowning out the narration this was a masterclass in how to engage the audience using sound, I was captivated from start to finish. In terms of style and story, this was very similar to Fatale, almost a kinda mirror of it actually, showing the love scenario from a different viewpoint.
You have a real flair for noir projects Ben, I think that definitely seems to be your niche right now, though having seen some of your visual work for Shadows it's clear you can tackle any genre and do it extremely stylishly.
In terms of improvements, I think some of the VOs were a little mumbled or you stumbled on words a little bit, but overall it was a superb performance and actually the little mistakes seem to add a bit of character and bring across some more of his grief. I really loved that you ended the film the way you did. I think showing the climax would have left me feeling empty but leaving a slight question mark at the end was great, along with the fact you came full circle from the beginning.
I think over the past few months you've improved dramatically as a filmmaker Ben. You've definitely come a long way since Prank Call. I would say you're now one of my top five directors on TMU and you're constantly improving.
Well done Ben, another excellent movie
