Would have been a brilliant 30-40 minute short film. The middle part of the film was dull—from the waxing “philosopher” to the little house of the prairie family. There is a brilliant film bookended here. The use of subtitles has never wrenched my heart like it did here. But I cannot stand the middle of this film. I didn’t need a guy to spew a postmodernist “everyone’s going to die” diatribe.
