Divided Amongst Us: The Blazing World effect
1 February 2021 | by deathgrip1234See all my reviews

The Blazing World (2021) is a visual powerhouse of dark horrific fantasy that delivers a mediocre message on trauma and mental illness. That's not the say I don't hate the film; however, I find myself entertained.

The story made things clear, unlike the short, about where this might be going. The first half is great and the second half makes you fall off a cliff. The cinematography is still present but I think it's a bit weaker than the short was. Nothing was pushing the boundaries. The acting had some potential and I think there was just one over the top moment that had me questioning it. The score is lovely and I love love love the lighting in this film.

This is a film that has already divided audiences during the screening. Most of them virtually left the screening. I wanted to stay and see what was going to happen. It turns out I was just satisfied with half of the film, but a majority of its technical aspects really hooked me.
