Saw this tonight at the Sydney Cockatoo Island Film Festival.
An interesting work. Really tests the limits by telling a story without a main actor, without a script, without a location. Achieves a certain level of film making bordering on genius or dilettante. What has been done here deserves notice by anyone who has interest in any aspect of film and creative process.
Its a fantastic experience and very much worth watching. Personally I found it interesting that the melange of actors/actresses/scenes spanning almost every conceivable situation, did not include such luminaries as, for example; Michael Caine and Christopher Walken, while still including multiple shots of actors such as Ethan Hawke.
Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed the premier viewing and relished every minute of what was produced by the writer and director in this instance.
