|A very skilled, very deliberate presentation||1fatts 03/07/2007 |
| Critics were divided on this one, and it seems to have come down to whether they "got it" or not. I got it. I frankly have trouble understanding how a professional movie reviewer could have missed it.|
The construction is thoughtful and very well executed. People seem to be not exactly where they should be; time moves too quickly and then too slowly; voices are heard at the wrong time and the wrong place; the confusion encompasses not just the characters, but the camera, the weather, the flow of time.
It is all wonderfully arresting, and I think it all comes together beautifully just when it should.
Well worth watching. Make up your own mind.
