| Potrykus makes cinema true and alive
Ape proves that cinema can capture the audience without unnecessary and distracting cuts, crane shots, or love interests. Burge's performance along with Potrykus' direction allows the audience to take in Trevor Newandyke with slight frustration, but still remain attached with a certain amount of likability to the character. Trevor, who seems to be full of frustration, just the same, seems to listen to music consistently reinforcing the frustration. Potrykus gives breaks of this anger with bits of comedy and fire. Ape has many twists and turns, and pushes the boundaries of its viewers with long shots and awkward scenes. Nonetheless, it seems to hold my attention throughout and leaves me wanting more for from this wonderful duo. Please note, the film may not be for you if you think good cinema equals ridiculous cuts, million dollar budgets, or plots that don't make you use your brain. Ape seems to have multiple levels and perhaps meanings that many may miss if not willing to let go of modern-day blockbuster expectations.
