Ready for some film-making transformed?
31 August 2003 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

Prepare your retina for a gorgeous work of art. This twisted tale of 'time and precision' hooks you from the very first frame to it's final flicker. Witness a case study of good old-fashioned story telling, meticulously mixed with subtle but effective cutting edge technology. A motion picture marvel that brilliantly reveals the fate of a couple of knuckleheaded cons, a visually challenged farmer and an impeccably perceptive kid on the eve of the biggest UFO scam, ever!

Beautifully shot, not unlike the best of Hitchcock, this glimmering 'mini-epic' can be visually enjoyed with the audio turned off. The dazzling deft and dexterity of the camera work is so intoxicating, you'll find yourself instantly pulled into a world of profoundly complex relationships. With a highly personal point of view and an intimate eye that embellishes the tiniest details, groundbreaking director- Mark Whiting ignites the imagination while stimulating our sense of wonder. After Lucas and Spielberg, SOMEONE had to be next.

Keep an eye on this guy.
