The rare art film that's fully watchable
10 October 2017 | by rjbartholomewSee all my reviews

I'm surprised this film gets any poor reviews. It is well scripted, stunningly acted, artfully filmed, and perfectly edited. The photography is the narrator, almost a character in itself-- intimate right up to the point of discomfiture yet neither artsy nor self-aware. The story seems, at least, to unfold as life unfolds-- you discover what's happened at the seeming pace of real-life awareness... but only seeming, of course, which is the film's brilliance.

What I like best about Five Nights is that it deals with a universal situation without triteness or cloying sentiment.

Sorry if this sound like a PR blurb, but this film is notable and beautiful and worth seeking out. It's baffling that anyone could miss this.
