More than just a flicker... kind of.
15 January 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film may be the most boring thing you've ever watched, but it is very important because of how it experiments with the concept of film. It is based on the aspiration to find the "essence" of film by taking away all the elements that it can (actors, narrative, mise-en- scène...) while still being able to qualify it as a film. I think the concept is really interesting, but it's so theory-based that you really don't need to watch it. It is just a white screen that randomly flickers. (I guess this COULD be exciting to some.........) Enjoy!

(my rating for the film is 8/10, though this is NOT based on amusement during the film whatsoever.)
