Almost Zen
11 January 2017 | by (Merseyside UK) – See all my reviews

I can't be quite sure this counts as spoilerful in the true sense of the word as I reveal nothing of the actual film or the not quite shocking conclusion, however I possibly describe the essence of the film with all the accuracy at my command to the degree that you will only need to watch the other 50% of the film (this will have no impact on the time you spend watching the film).

The beginning.

I had a few moments of excitement when I thought it was an animation. Next the introduction (a surreal infomercial of sorts)which, in honesty, I needed to push myself through. I am glad I was able to.

The opening credits are most enjoyable and I would enjoy the work of these animators again.

The film started gently with some rather unfortunately dressed young men and a narration which ensured that if I had missed any of the subtleties of the film during the introduction I would be fully refreshed at this point.

If you are only wearing denim shorts; you need a belt!

Everywhere seems to be a long walk, or similar mode of perambulation, from everywhere else. An almost eerily long way. A long long long eerie way. But that's Canadia for you.

The acting is acceptable as is the score.

There is a plot which seems to involve even more unfortunately dressed young men arriving. With equipment. And plot refreshers for those of us with quite serious memory problems. And those who struggle to work out what is going on with just watching the film. And those who struggle with contextual subtexts. If you are not sure of what any of these statements mean, or cant remember them, this film is highly recommended.

Underpants. You will have to watch it yourself to appreciate the consideration for costumery from the costume department in terms of both quantity and quality of underpants. Does make a change from the obligatory bikini shots in its favour. Though neither would have worked equally well.

Feelings of quite mild suspense dissipate with the epic hiking done between the mildly suspenseful parts.

Oh my god.....there's more unfortunately dressed people. And epic gaps between the mildly mild suspenseful bits. I am almost overwhelmed with a feeling of a sort of bliss.

Not sure about the Asian Ghost itself to be honest. Kind of didn't fit with the rest of the film. Weird thing to happen in a film really. Still if there wasn't an Asian Ghost it would have spoilt the title. Which is, as you can tell,by my being grabbed by the title quite the eye grabber.

Even the final infomercial seemed to be a long walk away from the rest of the film.

In essence not a terrible film done on a budget but a further 5 minutes in costume design would have gone a long way. Also an occasional attempt to step outside the boundaries of the story line of thousand films everyone has already seen would have taken it a step above mediocre.

Equally you have to give something not Hollywood box office a try occasionally and have given the film a fair rating for the enjoyment I got watching it.
