Truly exceptional.
9 December 2016 | by egal_okSee all my reviews

Hello!

I'd describe myself as an overly critical person when it comes to documentaries with socio-critical contents.

That being said, this movie convinced me from top to bottom without any doubt.

Short thoughts: a psychedelic-colourful spectacle paired with perfectly-judged and innovative cinematography accentuated with fantastic, self-produced soundtracks.

All these factors are just some of the reasons why I was sitting on the edge of my seat at times while watching the movie - and I can say with confidence, that I wasn't the only one feeling like this in the cinema.

A unique experience my best friend and I enjoy looking back to - it's a shared memory that could also be described as some sort of bound, because this experience still makes us connect when we talk about it. We both like looking back to that evening.

I just think that more people should have the ability to witness the train of thoughts the movie fittingly created for me.

Best watched in a silent setting and nothing else left for the rest of the day to do, this movie deserves more attention than it currently gets.

Regards
