BEAUTIFUL...simply beautiful
10 November 2007 | by acrosstheuniverse71See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Savannah Film Festival and was blown away, it is absolutely gorgeous. Not to mention that it has great message, a message that comes across in nineteen minutes no less. The only problem I saw with this film was that it wasn't longer, I wanted to keep watching. I can't wait until I will be able to buy this because it is filled with everything. Hardship, Loss, Death, Secrecy, Dictatorship, Revolution, and implied Rebellion. I believe that anyone who appreciates good independent films should see DEFACE. I would recommend it to almost everyone I know, and everyone I don't know, come to think of it. But as a student, a SCAD student no less, I believe that this film is amazing.
