A case of style over substance?
25 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have been lucky enough to view this movie via a legal promotion copy which was sent to my local cinema manager. He felt that it might be interesting to show the movie as part of our film club presentation, alongside a q&a session with the director, Paul Oremland. As a member of the selection committee he allowed me to view the film and report back my views on it.

Well, here goes! Whilst the movie is not exactly bad I could not help but feel that the style and look of the film appeared to outweigh the narrative. The hand-held cameras, images ripped from the surveillance cameras etc did, at many moments throughout the film, distract from the story-telling. In fact at points the style became so distracting that the actual story got lost in the mix. I also could not help but feel that the use of such techniques has been done so much better in the past, especially in 'Red Road'.

As for the story itself, and without wanting to give anything away, the conspiracy (or not!) related within all added up to case, in my opinion, of "yeah, OK, so what!" Although having said that I am sure that if the film gets a wider enough release whilst a certain enquiry is in full flow then it will pick up a certain following from those who like to believe in the type of issues that the film deals with! I do wish Mr Oremland well with the film, I'm sure he will find an audience out there, but for me it was far too much a case of style over substance.
