well expressed theme
26 June 2004 | by brozhiSee all my reviews

I like the movie quite a bit. I admit some of it is a little confusing at times, but the atmosphere and erratic movements of the characters does an excellent job of emphasizing the point that the place is unhealthy, and that the occupants aren't quite normal. If the place were bright and the people perfectly functioning the movie would have been far more confusing.

The costume choices and the diologue also added to the effect. The characters have strong personalities, and their connection to each other is well demonstrated. There are also some interesting quotes, that could go a long way towards getting the viewer to really think about what they are seeing, and what their life is like. I thought it was an excellent movie overall. Very well done.
