chanandre's rating of the film The House is Black

Muther fuckin' masterpiece. One of the best films ever, short or not. Must-see to any film buff. I'm sad it only lasted 20 minutes. Many people walked out of the theatre, yet the film's graphic nature was quite beautiful. I love the look on that boy (is it a girl? His eyes are somewhat feminine) when asked by the teacher to use the words he'd come up by himself on a sentence. Love the gating closing on us/audience.
