  2. Grecia Perez's rating of the film Afraid So

    SOOOO NICE BUT UNPLEASANT. Certainly it made me feel uncomfortable but that’s the point, I’m afraid so.

    Enigmatic narration and visuals

  5. Alexine Chanel's rating of the film Afraid So

    super sharp, super hot, or rather, dead cool, as in cold. perfect!

  6. Laura Guerim's rating of the film Afraid So

    It grew on me and made me think of several other questions to add. It left me a bit anxious. I loved it!

  7. artur.aruturu@gmail.com's rating of the film Afraid So

    very nice concept and atmosphere, but i'd like the images to be more abstract and less direct

  8. Magda Magdy's rating of the film Afraid So

    Unsettling and dark. Was about to say Dziga would be proud. But someone in the comment section said that already. I love the montage, combination of found footage, narration and doom ambient in the background. I only wish he woulda contrasted the visuals and sound even more by using less direct visuals to break/cut the narration and make it more fragmented and surreal.

  9. Cosma's rating of the film Afraid So

    Rosenblatt's tiny, elliptic, poetic, mysterious, elegant, transparent, terroristic, naive, sadistic, fragile, psychotic, digging, ecologic, cheap, valuable, exegetical, mesmeric, magnetic movies are truly amazing. Afraid so...

  10. panagiotatos's rating of the film Afraid So

  11. Kamran's rating of the film Afraid So

    Whoa. Abstract, direct, montage cinema at its finest. Vertov would be proud. 85 - Excellent.

  12. Étrange's rating of the film Afraid So

    The sense of dread is there through the voice, some of the images are wonderful. But it lacks the more unexpected footage to bring diverse meanings to the questions. The hanging for "Is my time up already?" adds to the atmosphere, the glass of milk for "Did the glass break?" contradicts it. To suggest impending doom, it must refer to humanity's growing chaos: have a man throw a rock through a shop window.

  13. guillermo's rating of the film Afraid So

    Fear and trembling in a poetic-cinematic way. As in other Rosenblatt´s short films, I got shocked, but also expected something more, which I ignore what that shall be, maybe it´s something about language itself that lacks a missing attribute. Please do not trust in language, not even in cinematic language. That´s it. Film arts are still illusion, not a granted access to pure essences of reality.

  14. LibertyCapz's rating of the film Afraid So

    I didn't find all of these as effective as I think they had the potential of being. Perhaps it was due to the fact that some of the questions asked in the poem seem much less significant than others. Take for example "Was the baggage misrouted?" vs "Do I have to remove my clothes?" One speaks more to the pit in your stomach, if you ask me. Makes sense though, would be rather strange to remove certain lines from it.

  15. vxpl's rating of the film Afraid So

    i guess i really have a soft spot for rosenblatts shorts...

  16. nica's rating of the film Afraid So

    mixed bag, some footage work better than others. Not Rosenblatt's best or most creative.

  17. Ilya Zverev's rating of the film Afraid So

    Very positive short, if you answer every question with "No" in your mind. Some of the response shots were quite funny. Shows how many fears we face in our lives, and how insignificant they seem with a distance.

  18. Epinephrin's rating of the film Afraid So

    Collection of fears. Not as unsettling as Mubi thinks. But interestingly realised.

  19. El Mau's rating of the film Afraid So

    Es una verdadera lata que esto no tenga subtítulos...
