Hard to follow
18 August 2018 | by jojomjohnsonSee all my reviews

I give stars for costuming and an attempt at artistic cinematography. The pacing left something to be desired and the constant breaking of the third wall to narrate what was happening only served to slow the plot further. I could tell most of the actors were more acclimated to live theater acting because the overacting and over the top expressions were distracting. Perhaps this was a directional choice, but it was a poor one. While I loved the steampunk feel of the costumes and set, that was about the only thing I enjoyed about it. Everything else made this film hard to follow and even harder to continue watching to the end. I feel like I need to watch again to try to understand what's happening, but I don't think I could stand to suffer through it again. It was a fine attempt at an artistic style of film, but I feel it could have been much better with quicker pacing, less break away monologues, a captivating musical score, and all around better directing.
