This film has advanced the art of cinematography and also takes the audience on a journey, one is totally unprepared for. It's a film where the collaboration between the cinematographer and the director felt seamless. It's bold, audacious, and visually challenging. It allows to see an extraordinary part of human nature in a fresh and profound way. It's a very personal film whose photography was organic to the story - a story that expresses the trapped circumstances of an individual. The frame of composition and camera gives the feeling of being trapped - and yet it also gives a feeling of exhilaration and hope.
