Truly Amazing
12 July 2014 | by (LA) – See all my reviews

I think this is the kind of movies that you either love or hate. I don't think there is much in between. You either get it or you don't. And you can see that on the other review. No surprising the film got a number of awards praising the film, and criticism at the same time. Not going into a lot of details, the movie either gets into your subconscious mind, and works its magic from there or it doesn't. If you like fluff or light mainstream movies this is not for you. If you're looking for something deeper and different, you must watch this movie. No doubt this director, Daniel Pace, doesn't make regular films, but strange ones. Another film of his that I reviewed "14 ways to wear lipstick", was weird, but delightful, but not for everyone perhaps. I disagree with the other "critic" to just call this movie bad (which prompted me to write this). Either he Was too lazy to pay attention (so he shouldn't be a critic), or he watched a different movie.
