Surreal and Uneven
6 May 2019 | by numberone_1See all my reviews

I intend to view this film again and perhaps add or change to this review, as I am of the opinion that Mathews was trying to power-pack several different stories that were all connected. Such connections were sometimes explicit, other times highly implicit, and even on occasion imaginary or inexplicable, possibly all told in real time, possibly juxtaposing past flashbacks with present actions, hence my partial title of "uneven". The film is also surreal on a number of levels, aided by on-location filming, contrasting scenes of bright sunshine (where actions and events of the characters almost seem unreal) with dark-of-night montages and interiors. Jonny Mars is excellent and conveys complex dimensions of Alex, no easy feat given the character's largely taciturn manner.
