This one feel like a psycho-analytic version of "Dreamscape" and the hypnotic dream sequences do have a disturbing dreamy feel to it if you let the images and the music overcome your senses. It is hampered by the same non-humorous tragic feel that every serious Baltic drama seem to have and the main hero lacks any true depth. The romantic angle is also an enigma and seem triggered by raw sexual energy not true love.
"Objectivity is nothing more than the fetish of truth." Lifted by its visuals and Peter Von Poehl's score, yet slightly marred by an excessive runtime, Vanishing Waves is a sexusensual cyber-thriller exercise. I'm extra psyched this is by a female director and a Lithuanian one at that. Very cool. 4.5 stars
It was a great film, I was specially drawn by the soundtrack and the overall concept of mind exploration, reminding me of «Altered States», had some interesting visuals going on as well. Although I should admit, regretfully (since it rarely bothers me), that I felt this dragged on a bit. However, it didn't affect the overall experience.
"Vanishing waves sigue la senda de la negligencia científica, pero ante todo, la humana, una que va despertando su lado egoísta y provechosa. Lukas pasa de pensar científicamente a pensar como persona en sí, sacando ventaja de un experimento que mengua sus necesidades humanas, aquellas que no logra solucionar en su propia alcoba...la frustración sexual..." http://bit.ly/10Pot87
really sad, when it was invested so much time to make logical movie with logical ideas of neural transfers, but it seems like during writing the screenplay they had forgotten about characters and dialogs, which i think is quite important to make a really good movie. now it has absolutely nothing to say for the audience
I hope this movie will start a new era of Lithuania cinematography. Beautiful, spiritual, touchable and artistic, quite good job made by extremely law buget. Every scenes which you see in this movie, was shooted in Lithuania landscape. So if you have happy feeling that never get shance taste coma, come to near Baltic sea.
