The story is quality, the score is good, but the goals of the director and cinematographer have left me with more questions than answers. What is trying to be accomplished with the (over)use of the color blue? Mise en scène throughout the film is boring. DP included purposefully shaky camera work during car scenes, which I find both interesting and profoundly annoying.
This time, the story was strong enough to make up for the lacking vision from the director.
