2 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this amazing film at a screening at Rhodes College recently, and I must say it was the finest film shown at this mini-festival. Granted, the other films were made by students, children really, and Mr. Rose is an alumni ... Nonetheless, the bulk of the other films were juvenile and, sadly, painful to watch. Orpheus was beautiful, poetic, haunting and exquisite (with the best soundtrack I've ever heard). It was deeply moving without taking itself too seriously. The humor was subtle and touching in the midst of a fundamentally tragic tale. The performances were low-key but effective, Rose's choice of using "non-actors" paying off in a big way. the editing was spot-on, and the perfect rhythm of the film was accentuated by Rose's amazing grasp on the best way to use a blend of classical and contemporary music with his stunning images. Mr. Rose has a brilliant future ahead of him, and I can't wait to see what he does next!
