«*DO NOT READ THIS COMMENT IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THE FILM THANKS*
Beyond impressed. I'm not the best at doing long reviews of things, but here are my thoughts. You managed to get me interested from the very beginning with very little, just a black and white scene of a guy getting on a subway train, rain pouring down, sounds like the basis of some kind of experimental Andy Warhol type film. But the great cinematography, sound design and music all lend to a foreboding introduction with a real creepy atmosphere and vibe. Didn't have me wondering "where is this going?" impatiently.. but "where is this going?" curiously... and then the lights flicker and the train stops, and I'm like "oh lord, here we go..."
Not knowing what to expect, I thought something was going to happen on the train, but was surprised to see that it opened into a hallway. Then seeing his past self, chatting up his future wife, the movie was moving in Twilight Zone direction and I got even more interested. We see in a flash their first kiss, their return from a probably very steamy honeymoon, and the tragedy that followed in it's wake...
The most effective and chilling part of the film follows, the guilt of what he had done taking over him, quite literally haunting him. The shots of her rotting corpse, her legs in the shower, and limping into frame with the camera peeking through the closet and appearing behind the man, the scariest thing I've ever seen in a The Movies film yet.. And I thought that was enough, you could have ended the film soon after that point and I would have been satisfied, as well as horrified.
But aaah, what a fool I was! It still needed it's Twilight Zone-esque ending, and we got one, no doubt about it. I thought it was a really smart idea to do this part of the film in color, the black and white in the first half looked great, I couldn't imagine it in color, but that addition did far more than just add variety to the visuals. I saw it as a contrast between what the delusional main character thought was reality, and what was really... reality. That was stupidly worded but, you get the picture.
The camerawork, sound design, and music choice were all second to none. Actually lapped when I saw Wolf Eyes in the credits, I thought I had heard something that sounded like them in the soundtrack... superb choice there, one of my favorite noise artists.
Yeah, so, those are my thoughts. This is one of the greatest things I've seen on this site, and I can't believe I neglected to watch this until tonight. Dead of night, great headphones, actual rain falling outside my window.. this was an awesome experience, by far your greatest work. Everything you've done is great though, and I hope to make something of this quality someday.
Still in awe,
«This was just awesome... really, can't say enough about the great use of black & white up until the end, the music was fantastic, the sound effects brought a lot of the scenes to life. There is really not much negative that can be said about this movie in my opinion, one of the best psychological/suspense movies that has ever been made with The Movies.
I had a feeling this would be a great movie. I wasn't wrong, and I can't wait to see what you make next. Sick job man! »
«That was brilliant! The camerawork, the music, and the sound effects were all perfect. They all set up a great atmosphere throughout the movie. Making a movie that tells a coherent story for over 20 minutes with essentially no voice overs is no easy task and you completely pulled it off. »
