This was a pretty stark viewing experience, not one I plan on ever repeating, but it did deliver in a few areas. For one thing the lack of soundtrack and the hollow/ cavernous room noise really added to the bleak mood permeating this one. The slow camera movement and the array of "clients" were also interesting and somewhat engaging... and all the grey concrete pretty much everywhere. In a few years I'll probably remember this one for the slow camera work, and endless greys and grey-blue tones throughout.

Catching up.......

This is #20 in DtC? :blink:
Seemed like a Sokurov-wannabe, but it failed for me. 5/10

I gave it the same rating. I'm going to assume it won't be at #20 after the next time it experiences a revote.
