Yahoo News You very much experience the film while in the middle of a narrative fog, a device heightened by the look of the film. Highlighting shallow depth of field and severe vignetting, the imagery feels ethereal, as if you re experiencing the short with your eye s half-open. It s a unique look that is as soothing as it is disconcerting…Gorgeous with a jazz-like quality …a top shelf film. - Film Threat 'A gripping and provocative masterpiece.' - IndieSource Magazine ''A sure fire Oscar nominee.'
