Michael Snow is an experimental filmmaker who uses Corpus as an excuse to see what he can do with computer effects (I think he must've read Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics and felt compelled to translates McCloud's suggestions over to the cinema).

Just proves that there are plenty of ways to make a movie.
