    "I like shells"

    The movie theatre was busting with laughter and there weren't any kids except my son! Mostly university students and the random middle aged man.

    ★★½ Watched 28 May, 2016

    I appreciate the taboo-breaking depiction of a relationship. Sex is part of most relationships in varying degrees of intensity. Why not show it if it is important to the story? That being said, the characters are unpleasant, the story fairly mundane and without great interest. This film was watchable and an admirable experiment but tended to be a little boring for me.

    ★★★★½ Watched 01 Jul, 2014

    Almost experimental. Great soundtrack. Moody as hell. Tracking shots like those of Birth. Reminds me of Roeg's "The Man Who Fell to Earth" in that the film is experienced through the eyes of the alien. Not much is explained. I like the mystery.

    This is one film that did not appeal to me in the least. I was not even particularly impressed by the cinematography. I won't criticize this one because my feelings about it are obviously biased.
