This long, all-but-wordless piece is good on the endless boredom of unsupervised childhood.

Nicely shot but too wilfully obscure for many tastes, it's to Xiao Li Yuan's credit that he carries a movie whose unrequited love theme doesn't merit this length.

A melancholic treatise on isolation and our failure to connect with those closest to us.

Royston Tan's film comes alive in the green hued semi-darkness of the flat, using long takes and infinite silences to show two troubled souls connecting through their mutual loneliness.

With this production (a natural progression from his previous work, notably 15) director Royston Tan most assuredly moves from the category of filmmaker to artist.

Somewhat ironically for a film about insomnia, 4:30 manages to send its audience to sleep. A lack of plot and an ill-judged belief in its own importance make it a disappointment for Tan fans.
