Amazing and captivating experience
13 January 2020 | by diamndkingSee all my reviews

I love the abstractness of the storyline in this movie. It really conveys a sense of wondrous joy and beauty of life as well as the struggles we experience during our life. The main theme of this movie seems to be writer's block. Many writers get stuck on what they need to write, and this movie certainly captures this emotion with the seemingly stationary drying paint. However as you continue watching this movie you can tell that the paint does indeed make a lot of progress, and by the end it reaches its goal and becomes dry. I really love the use of imagery and metaphors to truly captivate you in this controversially long 10 hour masterful craft.
