Loz Loory's rating of the film Fireworks

Awe-inspiring. The editing sets and maintains the tone. Brief fireworks of quick shots in between scenes of pensive silence or halting monologue. Sometimes the fireworks are flashbacks, sometimes flash forwards, and sometimes of the moment. This rhythm is the rhythm of everyday life: monotony and emptiness, with very occasional moments of horror or happiness.
