A self-aware work with layered narratives and motives which convey the liminalities of reality/fantasy, awake/dreaming, truth/fiction. At times document, at times story; always aware of its own artifice. Restrained, observational, and contemplative. An experiment perhaps for its own sake, the film struggles to engage beyond its tonal and aesthetic impressions.
77/100 – Very Good. (3.5)
