How terribly fascinating
21 May 2015 | by zuhairvazirSee all my reviews

Combing of a crime scene in less than six minutes and that too with a completely outlandish and strange approach at creating film. A film that manages to task out most of the intricacies or disciplines within the large spectrum of the craft itself.

Directed by Rodrigo Gudiño and Vincent Marcone, the film also manages to create conflict within the atmosphere with the help of a brilliant score.

A viewing experience that I cannot stop going back to, in my head, to relish in joining the puzzle, trying to fit pieces together just to rearrange them when I return to that spot in the woods.

The film is about a crime scene investigation of sorts. However nobody knows what the crime is even after watching some highly revelatory frames.

My brain is still processing the levels on the 'intrigued to loved' emotions.
