A ranting genius
14 July 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I am in no doubt that Peter Greenaway has the mind of a genius. But a genius can rant. The overall effect on me was that the film-maker was ranting to himself. This may be acceptable in shorter films, but over a certain length (15 to 20 minutes max.) the mind of the viewer expects a gear change. This is why the language of long format films is different from short films. Emotional and narrative turning points are necessary. Dramatic tension , assertive or subtle, is required to prevent disengagement. Connection with human energy encourages involvement. The only human connection was the formal voice devoid of any warmth. Therefore, even at only 40 minutes, the experience became tedious. Such a pity, as the initial sense of quest drew me in, and the graphics, and visual details were, mind blowing, literally. Halve the length, and even the ranting could become tolerable.
