A necessary watch for ANYONE studying film, 30 May 2012
Author: meteoraxv from Belgium

'Talking Head' is a necessary watch for ANYONE studying film, or any other type of art closely related to it, for that matter. This movie has surreal elements and is high on dialogue, and thus it is probably impossible (at least it was for me) to digest everything in one sitting. It is one of those movies that HAVE to be seen at least twice to fully understand it. Quote from a character, Mr. Morita: "It's necessary to see it twice."

A lot of twists and turns can be seen. A lot weirdness can be enjoyed. I especially like scenes in the little van that doesn't move.

Good watch, it definitely could've been a bit shorter though. You can easily lose your attention. You'll definitely miss a few lines. You might even fall asleep. Not all movies can pull off being 2+ hours long. 7*
