Though I enjoyed the screening of this film, I was quite disappointed about "Bartas' latest". Unlike his previous films The House did not take control of the, in my case well-disposed, viewer.
The separate shots were predominantly fascinating yet sometimes of a very 'controlled' profundity, the lack of continuity on the other hand was embarrassing. At most three consecutive shots formed some kind of a unity.
Therefore I think Sharunas Bartas should be locked up this time, in the editing room for at least a moth and then present a piece that will be worth his signature.
