Anachronism is interesting, but in the end a disappointment.
So this film came highly recommended by several blogs, and from the stills I was pretty excited. Then I spent 15 minutes with it and came away pretty nonplussed, and wondering what the excitement was about. It began strong and ended... Abruptly. And the mystery that was touted was pretty silly, as if mother knew what was going on all along and had to protect that knowledge from her children.
Still, the squid submarine looked pretty cool and the mechanical design was nice, although parts of it looked pretty rubbery in execution. It might have been stronger as a silent film since dialogue was at a minimum.
I sure hope my film turns out better.
