I’d like to start off by saying this film is an art piece. To put it simply it is one of the first great art films. While this film may not look the best and some of the techniques appear dated by today’s standards, the film does manage to captivate through clever cutting techniques. The films greatest success is also its greatest folly. This short tries to make the argument that, much like life, one doesn’t need to understand a film. Personally i watch a film to be entertained, so in that respect this film was a success, because it will keep you at the very least interested in what is going to happen next. However, when it’s all said and done, you can’t really be sure anything happened at all, which felt like something of a head scratcher. If arts your thing you’d enjoy this movie, if you’d like something easier to digest look elsewhere.
