What are people saying?

  • Kamran's rating of the film Mariner

    Well shot with impressive visual flair, colour and light filtration, and dynamic tones. Its formal and rhythmic impressions develop an atmosphere of mystery and intrigue that is rife with tension, thus captivating the audience, though its heights perhaps rely a bit much on the emotional impact of its score—a professionally executed technique that has become a bit too conventional in festival shorts. 74/100 – Good.
