Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Art is still alive.
13 April 2018 | by lonewolfleeisnoobSee all my reviews

Most of Stanley Kubricks work and Marlon Brando's acting was misunderstood and made sense on a deeper level. If you love art and music and watching a real actor at work then definitely check out Willem Dafoe in Opus Zero which was written and directed by Daniel Graham A film that feels like Stanley Kubrick and echoes of Sergio Leone. Beautifully shot, amazing music, solid acting from everyone and showcasing the beauty of Mexico and the fact that "silence is a value by which we measure sound".

Cerebral and the polar opposite to the mindless splatter of super-hero movies that just seem to be getting worse with a few rare exceptions eg The Dark Knight Watchmen and Endgame etc. Daniels work and Debut movie Opus Zero is the tip of the iceberg and testimony to the power of persistence and the preservation of Cinema, and is not another 500 million dollar wash and go movie. Art is still alive. Go Daniel Graham go,, and all Hail Willem Dafoe.

I felt relaxed and couldn't get the blues music parts of the movie's music soundtrack out of my head and i didn't want to.

Nice movie, GREAT music, breathtaking photography and philosophical grit.
