A Film For Those Of Us Prepared To Go Beyond Our Comfort Zone
The film is for those of us who are prepared to go beyond our comfort zone and tempt our palate with more esoteric flavors than we normally allow ourselves to absorb and savour. Middleground is disturbing and claustrophobic. It is a snapshot of life as most of us know it. It reminds me of a circle of life with a small opening. We can go around the circle and remain in our predictable pattern of life or we can find out what lies beyond the circle and venture beyond it...perhaps a parallel life imitating the one we have lived or a parallel life where the dreams that fill our head are happening...where the dreams we experience in slumber are real and our awakened life is the fabricated life. Or, maybe this is the world between life and death.
