    On the facade it’s refreshing, but the core is still a cliche, against the paternalism, authority, society, and the comradeship engendered from the process, which is fine, we need this shit constantly remind us of keeping fighting. But the ‘friendship’ here between the two protagonists is really ambiguously rendered, there were times I could really read something beyond friendship in Spanner’s eyes, not necessarily love, no. So that really annoys me, Brian Welsh might be better off developing them as a couple or just don’t add all these vague scenes at all.

    Wow, it’s like PTA+Lynch, actually more like PTA. Actually this gives me the impression of Inherent Vice, but not on too much drug, you still can have a clear thread throughout the whole film(well relatively). And the point Mitchell made here is clear, a full-on sarcastic attack on this hedonism value of today’s world.

    Social phobia + suicidal tendency + black humor + Jean-Pierre’s characteristic nervousness + cold color tone what a perfect match under Aki’s clinical direction, such a low-key master of applying colors, every time I watched Aki’s film, I got a grand sense of satisfaction from its color collection. Surprisingly, even the colors basically are cold here, Aki still managed a way of presenting a bright visual effect, partly is down to his works’ trait that there’s always a tender feelings…
