Really deserves another shot in my book because Bonello's approach is exactly my cup of tea, and his images are startlingly precise, icy, seductive, provocative. As an imagery-machine, it works. I guess I would have appreciated more clarity in the acting. Being opaque is fine, but he goes all the way to being cruel.
2 star film, but you could give it a extra star for some of the camera work thats in here. The film started out really great, than proceeded to divulge into boredom, unease and directionlessness, it's like it has yet to figure out what movie it wants to be. I'm pretty disappointed, due to the fact how truly impressed i was by Bonello's House of Tolerance (Which is one of the best 20 or so films of the last 10 years).
Narrazione appassionante, pur minata da una lunghezza eccessiva. Bello l'isolamento nel centro commerciale.Ottima la scelta di far restare fumose le motivazioni del loro gesto. La parte finale è ottima e mostra uno stato che punisce senza pietà. La regia è buona, anche se fa alcune scelte un po' forzate. Buon uso delle ambientazioni.Buon utilizzo degli split screen. Buoni i personaggi, anche se non molto approfonditi
part of me thinks that this film could've hit 5 stars for me if the ideology behind the attacks was clear (hinted at capitalism, but not enough), a la a godard film. part of me thinks that the film was powerful /because/ of the meaningless of the actions; the lack of a message was in and of itself a message. one definite complaint - some of those dept store scenes could have been cut.
