Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film The Last Wave

This film goes places that Picnic at Hanging Rock only hints at. It's eerie and beautiful and rifled with suspense. The cinematography and direction are even more assured here. My favorite quote was, "A dream is a reflection of reality." Portions of this had me wondering if it inspired Lynch and Murakami. I won't be able to get this film out of my head for a while, that much I know.
