A narrative of addiction and redemption is weaved out of the lives of those attending AA meetings, the turbulent life of several young adults and the relationships Aaron, a rent boy, and his clients share.
After beheading her husband, Queen Titiana takes over the mystical woods where lost souls and ghouls wander about confused in this surrealist film inspired by William Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.
A portrait of a lost generation, seen through the mind of Finn, as he tries to find a new perspective and escape it. A micro-budget, DIY-minded, independent film incorporating elements from mumblecore and found footage cinema.
I'm sittin here with the knowledge that this film was made for pennies - £4,000, and all I keep thinking is how?
Sure, there's the odd bit that look cheap - and most of the film is in exteriors or small underdressed locations, and sometimes the sound is a bit iffy... but this is some whacko crazy art house film with some stunning photography and solid performances, and it's bold - it's a lengthy thing, with moving emotional parts, and some coginitive thinking.
It's so well executed and atmospheric - like the ghostly woman walking around in the park thinking of her life... it's all so well done that I'm sort of stunned.
It surely couldn't have cost so little?
And if it really did, well that's bloody amazing!
