A meditation of time itself. Challenges the viewer's capacity for prayer as it entangles the spiritual and physical in worlds both of the reveler and the revealed through a form of fixed yet flowing movement. Slighted only in that concept is greater than creation and the finite world of mathematics inspired concepts is limited by its own presupposed parameters. A novel experiment. 85/100 - Excellent. (4.5)
A never ending complex labyrinth of sorts. Of course the literals of a camera spinning on a dry mountain top can can induce a sort of imagery that is void and also a spin inducing vertigo-esque experience, which I am sure which most would not want to revisit in the near possible future. I wonder if it will ever come out on DVD !
Francois Truffaut once said that the scenario of a film is not the film. La Region Centrale is the exception to that rule. Reading a summary of this film on a 3 X 5 index card is the same as seeing it. Better, because it will take you about two hours and fifty-nine minutes than actually watching this claptrap. You can fool some of the people all of the time. I thought Wavelength was good, though.
Hardest film I've ever watched. Painful (as anything worthwhile ever is). 2/3 of the patrons walked out of the theatre. Of all the film screenings I ever attended, I never saw that happening as often, as on this particular one, here. Every 20-30 mins, a couple would walk out. By the end, it was me plus two other strangers. Did change my life. I'll never forget that seesaw movement, between the rocks and the skies.
