Amir Nader, the director, apparently is a true Cinema lover. And this one is a proof & a statement against some situations seen in contemporary Cinema. The execution/ metaphor, however, is real repelling.
An odd duck of a movie. Very interesting, though I wouldn't necessarily recommend it. Combines a passion for historical cinema with a Yakuza story and Fight Club. Peculiarly, for a movie that incessantly decries the death of cinema, the movie is made in the style of the ultra-low-budget Christian Dramas I'd watch on television occasional Sunday mornings in the early 70s. It has all the earmarks of those TV dramas - the ultra-high contrast video look; the golden color palate; the wide open sets with spare dressing; the immobile cameras catching medium shots with occasional closeups; the minimalist, slightly echoey sound design. Just a really odd choice for a movie extolling the virtues and bemoaning the loss of "pure cinema."
