I love how uninterested this film is in keeping its symbolism subliminal. Shoot Glass through glass in every scene, give the everyday superhero an everyday uniform with a big SECURITY logo on the back, make it a poncho to block water after establishing his weakness as water, compose your shot like a comic panel and deliver a line like “life doesn’t have to fit into little boxes that were drawn for it” before moving the camera in a way that becomes a fundamentally cinematic language.
“This one has a surprise ending!”
“The thing to notice about this piece, the thing that makes it very, very special, is its realistic depiction of its figures.”
What else is there to say? Such raw pining for fulfillment here from everyone, sold on every conceivable level.
