The Dogma Genius...
7 March 2003 | by (New York, NY, USA) – See all my reviews

The opening scene has a flavor of Pasolini's work and then it is reinforced by a scene from a Pasolini's film...... This film will not be enjoyed by the masses, but that is to be expected with all great works..... Dogma in theory, Dogma in Style....... A must see, especially for any film junkie or film maker.... It is rich in the shooting techniques of angle shots and their use of lighting is brilliant.... If you have ever been in that part of the world, Sicily, then you may even recognize a few of the characters......
