Evan Schafer's rating of the film Last Days

This film is definitely more about context and less about dialogue, which may be why the film appears to go "slowly" -- the story is muddled, but not out of reach for the viewer. There absolutely is meaning hidden underneath the facade of long shots, mumbling as talking, unusual sound design, and lack of consistent dialogue. Give it more than one viewing ... it will begin to make sense.
