worth watching
26 May 2004 | by FlorenceLawrenceSee all my reviews

After watching "Solid Geometry" I was left staring at the screen for a bit, stunned, it's a good idea to watch this with friends so you can discuss it.

It's not so complex and intricate as something like 'Mullholland Drive', but it has a taste of that.

Ewan Mcgregor fans will love it, as it has the thought provoking style of much of his work, and great directing by his uncle Denis Lawson.

Definitely worth watching, even though at 30 minutes it does feel unfinished, unexpanded, almost like a taster for a bigger project, almost like a vehicle to attract funding in order to make a full feature.
