Ratings & Reviews

  1. Erik F.'s rating of the film Ashes

    Watched in dual-screen format at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. The juxtaposition between the two "halves" of the film (essentially, life and death) is effective.

  2. sashmere's rating of the film Ashes

    Saw this video as one of the installation piece at the ICA, Boston. Two different scenes were projected onto a two-sided screen at the same time, using the same audio. Altogether successfully conveys a haunting narrative. It was brilliant, to say the least.

  3. Ekaterina Chernyaeva's rating of the film Ashes

    You may think there is no story. Just a beautiful portrait of a young, unknown to us man Ashes. However, I think there is even more story than in a more 'conventional' film. With all works of McQueen I've seen I thought he has a great ability to tell stories with his camera, visually, cinematically, to say more without words. This work is a good example of this talent.
