Creative film work with imaginative Story
on May 14, 2013
Its hard to write a review for movies like this because, unlike most films, it does not force feed you the story or treat you like you are need to have your hand held to "get it". Shane Carruth's second released film, after the excellent Primer, is a love story, a tragedy, a beautiful audio and visual experience, and it asks questions instead of telling you your own answers up front. I will have to watch this movie a few times more (which I rarely do with films as so few are worth more than a first or second glance) before I can fully conclude how my viewer empathy and interaction (or reaction) to this masterpiece is. I will say to anyone reading this... if you like movies as an art form then this movie is for you. If you liked Shane Carruth's first film Primer then you should definitely watch this film. It will make you think and you will walk away wanting to see it again.
The Blu Ray pack I bought on Amazon came with the usual Amazon speed and quality packing. The disks inside were secure and the Blu Ray packaging was in no way damaged or flawed.
The Blu Ray version of the film had no issues. First playing was done in a Playstation 3 Blu Ray drive. There were no audio issues that I experienced. The video and soundscape quality are top of the line and better than some blu ray disks that have come out. Crisp clear picture, blacks were black, colors vibrant (as is the intention), and the audio on my Onkyo 7.2 surround system was atmospheric. Basically on the blu ray, enjoy the show. If you did have issues you may be able to replace your disk if there were fabrication issues. I would think amazon would trade in for a new copy or even Shane Carruth possibly.
I hope this review helped a little bit if some of you are on the fence with this. I will be watching this again a few more times and its time to watch Primer again.
