Cool Camera Work/Editing but Weak Story
The Tao of Netflix | Washington, DC | 01/12/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)
"The story synopsis provided in the Amazon page adequately describes the story, so I'll spare the reader a recitation. I'm one of those people who will endeavor to find something of redeeming value in a film, and there is certainly something present here, namely the camera work, cinematography and editing. Obviously this is a low budget film, not micro budget, but certainly not large budget. And for that classification, it demonstrates a surprisingly high degree of creativity in camera work, etc. It defly pulled off some cool dream-like sequences, hallucinogenic states, etc., without necessarily exposings its potential low budget weaknesses. These aspects alone make this a highly recommended rental, and worth the 1.5 hours or so of your life. What keeps this from being a strongly recommended purchase is its lack of a coherent story. Along with the female protagonist, there is a clown character and a devil girl, neither of whom are accompanied by a worthwile purpose/explanation/origin, etc., they're just there and they do random things. The story attempts to provide a circumambulatory attempt at answers, but its weak. However, as I previously said, the experience is a fun one, and I can't criticize it too highly for its lack of a comprehensive story. Fun stuff, just expect to enjoy the visual element more than the plot."
