Theatrical immersion
29 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seeing this film in a theaters absolutely blew me away. The sound design and cinematography is absolutely brilliant. So dope.

Subtle way to tell a large story, I loved how the movie didn't just blast out some fool talking at me about fishing. Who gives a f*ck. This was a more powerful way to get at the same point.

I recommend this film to just about anybody with an open mind, but this is a MUST see in theaters to experience the power of this film. I can't imagine watching this film on a tiny computer screen DON'T DO IT!

Powerful film, beautiful filmmaking, looking forward to these cats next flick
