Art in Motion, 10 December 2005
Author: wlazarou

When I first watched this movie I couldn't get past the nudity enough to see the art. I watched it again and started to see that the nudes were so perfect they were more like mannequins than anything else. How can a movie about night-fill at a supermarket possibly be any good? Add Sean Biggerstaff , humour, and an outstanding writer/director such as Sean Ellis, and you get the perfect mix. Sean Ellis, in his first attempt at movie making, takes you on a journey that perfectly mixes art ( nudity, lighting, Ben's drawings), with humour. One can easily see that Sean Ellis has a great career ahead of him. One can only hope for more like him still to come! The amount of detail put into such a short amount of time certainly makes the film worthy of all the awards it has received at various festivals. The new one is now finished and ready for distribution. I'm looking forward to seeing the full length film now!
