  2. Wee Hunk's rating of the film On Top of the Whale

    Just for kicks I read the NY Times review of this movie. "Boring" they said. How could you not start laughing when the anthropologist asks the tribe what their word for various items is, and they reply with the same word over and over, and he writes it down? Just like Bill and Ted's bogus journey with the aliens who only have one word, 'stations'. This is filled with absurdist comedy. I want a better print, though.

  3. Scott Barley's rating of the film On Top of the Whale

    Aesthetically frustrating, since there a fleeting moments of organic, subtle beauty (see final shot), but the majority consists of sickly, synthetic colours that don't do anything for me, personally.

  5. ExperimentoFilm's rating of the film On Top of the Whale

    This was shown at NYFF in 2012 (with Jordi Torrent, Michael Almereyda and Willem Dafoe in attendance). Valeria Sarmiento also presented a digitised screening at the Centre Pompidou in Paris in March 2013. Could a DVD be on the way at last!?
