Great collection of images, great photography. Too monotonous, too experimental.
I don´t think this is a good movie, despite the awards to the director. I don´t even think this is a movie, for Christ´s sake! It´s way too experimental. Silent movie. Too monotonous at some times. Of course it can bring you to the magic of early cinema. Of course the photography is brilliant. Of course this is a great collection of images... but it´s just not a movie. No plot, no story, no sequence in the action. I thought nothing could ever surprise me after David Lynch´s "Eraserhead". Well, this one did.
