In the City of Sylvia ★★★½

It takes about thirty minutes for the film to really engross me. After the first thirty minutes, this becomes something truly special. Guerin’s film is one of the most interesting depictions of memory I have ever come across. It perfectly captures the feeling of longing for something more. The way Guerin warps with imagery is incredible. All of the imagery depicted has to do with memory in some shape or form. The film explores how our perception is warped from reality in a way I have never seen before. The film does suffer from a couple of minor problems. It occasionally lingers away from the central focus of the film. I would have liked to have seen this been a bit longer. It came and went in eighty minutes.
