Unbearable Shaky Cam
9 February 2020 | by cliftonsierralkSee all my reviews

I saw this film at Sundance 2020. Lead gave us a thrilling performance. However, camera being handheld most of the time and especially in the more active scenes lead to an unwatchable shaky cam whenever the main character started running. Almost no wide shots the whole movie, and everything was close up. All the time people would be doing things with their hands or something like that but you couldn't even see it and that was so annoying. I would literally stop watching during the shaky cam parts because I was getting literally nothing from it and I was scared I would get a headache. If the movie had a bit more polish or maturity with the cinematography perhaps it would have been eons more enjoyable.
