Artistically beautiful cinematography
15 June 2010 | by ali-ward08See all my reviews

I saw this film In San Fransisco, and although it may lack a followable story I really enjoyed the film. Its highly artistic and every shot is put together beautifully; its a very nice film to look at, and the soundtrack may somewhat contrast with the themes and time the film is set in but i personally think it carries the film along well. Some people will love it, some will hate it. Worth the watch to get an idea for yourself, you will understand after watching. I think the cinematography wins top marks in this film, and has priority over the story as its a very artistic film, and there's some very 'interesting' slow motion scenes.
