Scotch's rating of the film Mother of George

Probably some of the most striking cinematography I've seen in a long time, but the rich aesthetic doesn't always work: it often drowns the most emotional scenes in reflections and stylish nonsense. Sometimes I just wanted to turn on some damn lights and slap the DP! Most of the characters deserved more complexity, but I generally felt like there wasn't enough content for a 100-minute film.
