Watch great cinematography on a big screen
7 December 2009 | by (Ipswich MA) – See all my reviews

"45365" has far better images and sound and editing than I've come to expect from documentaries. In fact cinematography is one of its strongest characteristics. All the images are very high resolution. The viewer is left wondering how they did that when the whole screen fills with a gorgeous nature shot. Color depth is significant too - a shot of subtle shifts in the color of the light as clouds pass overhead could easily look washed out and boring in another film, but it comes through here. Watch this film in a theater or projected or at least on the biggest baddest HD screen you can find; if you just watch it on a TV-in-a-box, you'll miss a big part of what it's all about.

I found the editing and cutting to be pretty quick and effective. I was never tempted to sink back into my popcorn and ignore the screen for a while. Then again, I'm nearly sixty and my motor probably runs slower than yours and I've sat through some really sllooowwww films. This film is not a borefest of interest only to cineasts - but many won't find it gripping either.

Lots of different ideals of what a "documentary" is are associated with lots of different styles of film-making. The particular kind of documentary motivating this film avoids any kind of analysis like the plague. It goes even further, trying to have no Point Of View at all. No POV means no story line nor plot in the traditional sense, and no resolution of any kind. It's unfair though to say the film shows only the "good parts" of small town life. Weird and fraying and busted relationships are shown. Legal and illegal drug use and alcoholism are shown. Crushing boredom leading to escapism is shown. People are shackled for their court appearance and face jail time. What's not shown --nor even commented on obliquely-- is either "why" people behave this way or whether a "significant" proportion of the population is affected.

The film helps you imagine life in a small town. What it doesn't do is give you it's opinion of whether that life would be "good" or "bad".
