strange, yet interesting...
30 October 2004 | by (OKLAHOMA CITY, OK) – See all my reviews

I liked Marathon, but I thought it was a strange premise. I felt compelled to watch it from beginning to end. The black and white helps, gives in an early Spike Lee kind of feel. I also think the filmmaker wanted to try out a few techniques with sound by using it very minimally. The actress did a good job, I've reviewed many films on Triggerstreet where people try to create a piece of this stature and it doesn't register as this one did with me. I think the piece was way more interesting once she came back to her apartment. Naturally, the space was smaller, but it gave her more challenges of like trying to recreate that wonderful sound of the subway and of the city. I recommend this work to aspiring filmmakers...
