A great art film
25 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Arsonist is a rare film by a filmmaker with a unique voice.

Being a filmmaker myself, I appreciate films which have a distinct sensibility and a particular point of view. The Arsonist is one of those films. Writer/Director Myles Sorensen has a style and a sensibility that is 100% original and fresh. It is this type of filmmaker who will break open the current conventions of Hollywood Cinema and raise it to a new level. And we need this!

The Arsonist is a brave film because it doesn't follow any particular conventions, nor does it beg to ask you to like it. It simply offers you a flavorful, engaging, stylistic, complex narrative that leaves you with questions that are more fun to try to answer on your own, than to gobble up with a spoon.

I tip my hat to the unique voice of Writer/Director Myles Sorenson.
