Crazy, stunning, visual dv garden.
4 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this film. It was stunning, shocking and graceful in its visual garden of DV special effects. Not only did it keep my attention but it drove me to think out side of the box when thinking of a future genetic power world. The acting was strong and powerful and Coyula took obvious risk in many of scenes. It had a Clock Work Orange feel but was mixed with Star Wars type visuals. I had a chance to view the film at the 2004 MicroCinema Festival and it was by far the best thing on the screen during the 4 day event. Miguel Coyula is a film maker of the future and one should keep a close eye on and I expect great work from him in the future.
