Distractingly cluttered with "art"
4 June 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews



IFC aired this film in its "next wave" series, and considering that it had been released 7 years earlier, the next wave is slow on the uptake. This is a mindless clutter of odd lighting, odd camera shots, and worst of all, a sound-track that seems to have had a lot of roll-off or something to filter out all but the most jarring ambient sound, making the dialog excruciatingly difficult to understand (except parts that were sharpened by the effect of being heard on the telephone). I have no problem with "experimental" film, provide the director is experimenting with something that has the potential to add some new, essential element to the future of cinema. But all I saw in this was a lot of old puerile stuff that had already been tried by the Germans (or were they Prussians then?)
