Tematica acestei producții nu e chiar așa de simplă de apucat, intrând într-un mediu experimental. Începutul este mai mult decât enigmatic, dar coloana sonoră te ține conectat până la apariția primelor imagini.Realizatoarea Ana Vaz îl consideră un film-poem a unei istorii repetitive, tăierile de montaj și filmarea pe 16mm îl face o peliculă de genul found-footage, dar care surprinde momentele unei călătorii.
Visually arresting, with great sound design throughout. Gracefully coaxes its class-conscious themes from the disparate visual strains, while seldom resorting to blunt-cudgel symbolism (scene of strutting peacock interspersed with fetishized dinnerware displays excepted).
No continuity, No visual narrative, and even the sound is not related to the visuals; the Peacock makes a sound without moving his beak...... Really???????? Made a better visual film when I was 16, with my Super-8 camera. Occidente is a Tragic Accident brought about by pretention and self-delusion. A waste of good film stock.
I hate rating, but I had to do that in order to add a review. What I wanted to say, is, that I'm so proud that there are people like you in the world, Ana Vaz. We need more materials like that in our fucked up world, which is filled up with so bullshit movies! RESPECT!
