remembering "Waiting for Godot"
14 November 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

this is my image about film. fair, because it has no explanations and, almost, no story. spectacular 3 D animation, so impressive than it seems not have need of a coherent story. two characters walking inside a huge machine. that is all. and the motif for see it without looking for explanations. because , like some stuffs, it is enough to see theme. the purpose is only a small detail. "Elephants Dream" is an example for that.
