張大智's rating of the film Once Upon a Time There Was a Singing Blackbird

I love this type of film. The events are so spontaneous, so incidental, and maybe even (I hope) put together in the same way. Youthful and raw, restless and energetic. Gia's life is caught on the run. A furious run against his predestined fate; and then.. just when you're starting to get used to his turbulance; the brakes squeal, the crowd builds up.. and you're left to wonder what happens. Perfect.
