  • saitosouta's rating of the film A Strip of Uncut Wildflowers

    Yuri Ilyenko: My new favorite director. Ilyenko constructs a lyrically distinctive world of exuberant magic realism with wuthering winds, collapsing walls, beating rains and shouting hermit, in which delinquent boys' vivacious rebels between innocence and anger are captured by surprisingly flowing and elegant camerawork. The sequence of careening on a lake by a motor boat has a sense of excitement and liberation.
