A beautiful, surreal experience that really hits home...
In my opinion we are in an age where filmmakers and artists in general take the minimalist approach too far, leaving us to want more. This movie is not afraid to make you feel. It takes you through a span of emotion that never feels disingenuous. It lets you laugh, cry and most importantly, dream. The story is genuinely hilarious at times and completely heart wrenching at others. Perhaps my favorite aspect, was that scenes of a very real and gritty human experience are interwoven with beautiful surreal imagery that is at times even psychedelic. This is done seamlessly, just as life is when seen through the eyes of a child. Flutter entertains and let's us escape. That is after all what art was meant to do.
