McMullen credits
21 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ZINA is one of McMullen's best films because of Domiziana Giordano's acting and Loftus' photography. McMullen has a terrible habit of not giving credit to his crew members and that is completely unprofessional in the business. He makes the same mistake on the film GHOST DANCE. It is an oversight that the filmmaker needs to sit down with his psycho-analyst and figure out what his problem is... the oversight is unforgivable.

Obviously influenced by one of the greatest filmmakers in the history of cinema and brilliant transcendental visualist Andrei Tarkovsky and borrowing Giordano after the Russian's (Belarus) striking Italian internal landscape film NOSTALGHIA where Giordano puts in a fierce and commanding performance, McMullen hoped to capture the internal emotional and psychological state of Trotksy's daughter. What McMullen lacks in narrative abilities, he makes up for with a strong sense of visual juxtaposition
