«Wow! Very moving.
Fantastic film. »
«I have gotta admit. The first impression I got from this film was some kind of a mourning-drama. Then, I saw all the symbolism that conveyed this beautiful tapestry of self-deception and how ignorance can be bliss but also expensive. I'm not saying I'm jealous, but you make TOO many good films, Mac. Your next project should, and will, blow us out of our minds as did this. Unlike Family Values, this has a greater sense of "get" and replay-value. Not to say FV doesn't, but just not at this caliber. A 5...out of 5! However, the one thing I didn't like was the kinda open ending. Yeah, it's pretty clear what directions he can go from here, but, I would've liked a little more linearity for this piece. A great effort, no less. I went into this watching this without seeing any previews or photos and I was even more surprised.»
«I really enjoyed that Mac. I followed your suggestion and went for the download and the film really looked great. It was very well written with a great air of mystery that revealed itself as the film progressed. The mood you set was just spot on. The open endedness of the ending was realistic and hit me in an emotional way due to the empathy that was felt for the character. The voice acting was great but the biggest surprise for me was that you played John. I was trying to place the voice and at one point I thought it was GP. You did a great job with the American accent. »
«That was such a touching, beautifully made film, Mac. Every film I see, you just keep raising the bar higher and higher. The imagery in this film is so appropriate, and the camera work really carries the story along. A really nice ending too, it just perfectly concludes everything. Kudos to your cast, everyone carried their characters so naturally and believably, and of course the use of music was absolutely integral to sustaining the emotion of such a movie. Sorry for not being able to say a lot, since the movie goes beyond technical terms and touchs me on a purely emotional level. Amazing work, Mac, amazing work. Consider me gobsmacked!»
«Top notch work Mac! I really enjoyed all aspects of this production... it breathes nicely.
All the the voice work believable and extra special kudos to you for your portrayal of John. Music was of fitting and minimalist. Your camera work was in your face and visceral. Top stuff!
«Brilliant work! Very entralling. What stands out to me is how visually attractive this is. Great use of mods, VO and music. Very good story that is extremely touching. Awesome work and great job by everyone involved! One of the best dramas I've seen on this site in recent memory. Continued success! »
«A great dramatic and artistic work here. The imagery was splendid (especially the final shot), and most importatly, intelligently made. Some artistes throw in any bizarre images just in an attempt to be different, but all your scenes have a metaphorical depth which elevates this film on so many levels. Splendid work. »
«Beautifully done! Solid sound design and fitting music. Post production was excellent and it really added to the story. More than anything else I loved the exquisite imagery.
I don't know what I want to say to the old man. Sometimes I wonder if at least some of us are meant to exist at least partially in fictional worlds. Or perhaps all of us do in a certain degree. (By the way, you may enjoy a film, called Sous le sable (under the sand)).
«Don't think I've seen anything made with The Movies before. I'm impressed! You've put this together very well. Characters, sets, music and acting, not to mention the storyline which was gripping right through with a great ending. That last shot was a work of art. I almost missed it, but something clicked and I backtracked to take another look. Just wonderful
Can't wait to see what you come up with next »
«An excellent production. This really shows you how effective The Movies still is. You continue to impress with your cinematography, set dressing, and your color correction. I really enjoyed this film - you surely have matured into a very respectable and talented filmmaker.
Looking forward to what you engage us in next. »
«Damn you Capa, always ruining everyone's dreams... I really like this production. Music was very fitting, especially the track by Clint Mansell. Lot of good sound design and visuals, very dreamlike. The acting by you, Mefune, and Sonya were great. Well directed and made carefully once again.
«I really beginning to dislike you, Mac, because you make the rest of us look so inept. LOL ... well.... at least me.... but I freely admit to being inept so it doesn't really matter. You are one talented whipper snapper. This was a nice character piece and a story of lost opportunity. The atmospheric qualities by the usage of colour and music was masterfully done. I'm not in denial... this was a brilliant study. Loved the final reflection.
«Not bad. In all honesty, I wasnt very interested in the story or characters, but as usual, this is a brilliantly directed film. On top of that, the editing, music, and sound design are all pitch perfect.
The voice acting was admirabley done, though I think that some of the lines spoken came off as a bit unnatural. The visuals are excellent, with a constanly changing tone to reflect the films mood, and some very nicely made mods.
Not a bad film, Mac. Good work. 4/5»
«Excellent work, this is truly great TM drama, well directed and acted! Very enjoyable. It's amazing to see how far our beloved TM engine has come. This movie boasts some amazing close up shots. The effects and sound are well rounded, and the music really adds to the prevalent melancholy throughout the movie and the depiction of a blurry line between reality and dreams.
Fantastic visuals and set dressing along with some fine voice acting from the cast. A really well made film Mac. You should be proud! You really are one of our community's best TM directors and you show how far we can push the software to make our films the way we want them to be.
