    Not a half bad "one location" film, better than Exam imo, still a lot of arguing, but it doesn't take up most of the film. It also had pretty good dialogue, with some "heartfelt" moments that worked pretty good. Enjoyable indeed.

    More puzzles and mystery would make this film better imo, but instead they went for 80% arguing and fighting. I enjoyed the simular films "Circle" And "Cube" a lot more. Should have been called "Rectangle", maybe that would make it better.

There aren't really happening much the first 90 minutes of this film, yet I am invested in it. I think it is because his editing style and dialogue is really something else.

    ★★★★ Watched 07 Jul, 2012 4

    Film with a bunch of shorts directed by well knows directors. A film about the love for cinema, by the people behind cinema itself. I enjoyed most of it, but some of it was pretty bad. My ratings:

    10 Atom Egoyan (segment "Artaud Double Bill")
    09 Ming-liang Tsai (segment "It's a Dream")
    09 Lars von Trier (segment "Occupations")
    09 David Cronenberg (segment "At the Suicide of the Last Jew in the World in the Last Cinema in the World")
