Probably as close to poetry on the screen as possible. The technique interests me far less than the concept, executed with an honesty rarely found in this kind of film. No muddled fooling around with time and point of view here -- simply a harsh, existentialist stream of consciousness that leaves the viewer with more questions than answers.

What stands out as well is the clarity of character conveyed by superb acting. Of course, that is achieved in part by what I infer as good direction, camera work, and editing. There is no posturing here, even though some of the split-screen stuff seemed unnecessary. Personality lingers in the air long after one scene fades into the next, leaving visual images that create layers of imagination in the viewer's mind. The "design" is thus simultaneously both idea and image.

I suspect it may take a while for this one to be recorded and remembered by the public at large (if ever!). It could well be a stepping stone for some budding careers.
