Absolutely stunning
11 February 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It's always an amazing and thrilling experience to come across art that hits you with its' depth.

I tried to watch the film when I was tired and looking to have something on as I slept, and something wouldn't allow me to. I'm glad I waited until I was awake and alert the next day to see this.

I've always believed that great work can't easily fit into a genre, and this is one of them.

I highly recommend for those that don't seek explosions and loud noises as entertainment, but something that captures the attention.

The story is crazy. So much is being said that it's almost overwhelming.

Well done.
