Dark and disturbing
19 July 2002 | by jon-knautzSee all my reviews

A fine piece of work by Mr. Proyas at such a young age. Being a huge Proyas fan, when I got the chance to view this film, I naturally jumped at the opportunity. Shot on 35mm and combining stop-motion with live action, this dark and disturbing piece, ventures into an alienated society where violence appears to be just another everyday occurrence.

What I really liked about this film was the mood and tone it set right off the start. A similar feeling to what Proyas would later display in films like The Crow, and Dark City. The urban society, in which these characters dwell, is a dark and depressing one. The stop-motion effect of people moving throughout the frame also adds to the strangeness of this film. Every so often cars race by, revealing only a streak of light, surging with energy. The sounds that accompany them are sharp and painful, sending a shiver down the audience's spine. Not only are the locations and lighting great, but also Proyas' choice of shots is simply magnificent. The early signs of a true master of the camera.

But despite the technical beauty of this piece, there is a story involved, as well as characters, which are both real and sympathetic. An all around successful short film as far as I'm concerned. I look forward to Mr. Proyas' new work, and will continue to stay a loyal fan, as he has inspired me very much as a filmmaker.
