People worry so much about understanding dance that they commonly interpret anything not entirely traditional to be completely idiotic or far too esoteric to enjoy. Dance isn't meant to be analyzed in the same way a narrative film is. Allow yourself to be lost in the marvel, and stop worrying so much!
If it just had that one little push over the edge... if the story had one more tiny ounce of oomph... I could say a million "If it just" statements about this film, but that wouldn't change it. So much potential. The film is literally on the cusp of being great, fantastic, mindblowing even. But it wasn't. And it never will be.
One of the best films I have ever seen
This is one hell of a Giallo. Or is it? Definitely a slow one, but really knows how to build a mystery. 4/5
Perhaps my favorite comedy. So so so so much more than just an office comedy! It begs us to ask ourselves about our dreams and our realities. 5/5 stars
It may seem like a very typical African documentary, but deeper, it's the story of two cultures colliding, and how each handles it. On one hand, the westerners try to smother the African culture, but on the other, the African culture absorbs and turns the western culture into its own beautiful identity. 4/5
There's a reason this film is so incredibly "hollywood". Look for the message hidden in the film. On the entertainment side, and incredibly well made war film. Love those transitions! 4/5
Certainly not his best work, definitely will drag you along (is essentially two films, each complete with an entire story arc), but in the end you'll come away with something you've probably never known about. More than this, viewing for the mute character will give you a lesson in writing dimensional characters without dialogue. A must see.
As far as Documentaries go, this is top-notch in style, revelation, and direction. It delves into the nature of hypocrisy in politics, and what this means for the people of America, and does so in an ultra-stylistic approach. Definitely one of the best in recent years.
A great effort by funny man Richard Ayoade (IT Crowd, Darkplace) to bring it down a few levels and tell us the story of adolescence, sex, and love. I found the film entertaining, interesting, and hilarious, but it's certainly a film that one will either love or hate. 5/5 stars
An extremely interesting film for those that know of Schweitzer, and certainly an entertaining film for those that don't. Read up on the guy and then watch this, you'll be astonished. A must see for lovers of African Cinema, although certainly not the best example. 4/5 Stars
