Movie Info

With his 74-minute feature Container, Swedish avant-garde filmmaker Lucas Moodysson plunges, headfirst, into a surrealistic dreamscape and offers a sharp critique of contemporary society. In crafting this motion picture, the director pulls the audience into a different cinematic mindset - a stream of consciousness mode of storytelling, where he floods the viewer with everything at once - "relevant and irrelevant" - in lieu of a more conventional, linear narrative mode. Shot in patchy, grainy,

[A] mesmerizing cinematic box of tricks.

Moodysson definitely created something haunting; imperfect and nonsensical as it may be at times. Is it pretentious? You bet. Is that a bad thing? Not at all.

Audience Reviews for Container

The editing is fantastic. It also works well as an ode to the experimental cinema of the US in the 60s, Warhol's films in particular. It's not very good though. I think it's more offencive to the very people it's depicting, is that what Moodysson is aiming for? Gender identity is a very real condition, here it's passed off as a fad of delusion, confusion and abnormality, something that might happen if you read the gossip magazines a little too often. This is a short story that has overstayed it's welcome and has no point. Moodysson has become a victim of his own reputation. I bloody hate whispering narrative too.
