Critic Reviews for Day Night Day Night
Loktev creates a minimalist study of unfathomable faith.
Unfortunately this portrait of a young woman on the eve of her first terrorist foray -- a bombing of Times Square -- replaces the knee-jerk patriotic bluster of Hollywood films with its own postmodern cliches.
All in all, it's a creepy subject for a movie -- especially when there is no payoff at the end.
Efforts to universalize this story by avoiding specifics ends up making Day Night Day Night broad and blank, reducing the lead character to one more generic nutcase for us to fear and pity. And isn't the anonymity of bombers precisely the problem?
Day Night Day Night brings plenty of shakycam immediacy and a cute face to what seems to be zero point of view.
Day Night Day Night has captured viewers' attention around the world for its remarkable craftsmanship, technical command and distinctive vision.
Audience Reviews for Day Night Day Night
very dry and realistic, down to every last detail, but ultimately goes nowhere
Intriguing story plot. An interesting performance by Luisa Williams. Worth seeing!
[font=Century Gothic]"Day Night Day Night" proves the old adage that if you have seen one suicide bomber walk through Times Square, then you have pretty much seen them all by so overloading on detail, that what is meant to be frightening instead just leads to a feeling of impatience from the viewer. Actually writer/director Julia Loktev is less concerned with terrorism then with how women are treated by men, in this case, a young woman(Luisa Williams) being coerced by men to do the unthinkable. However, this same woman has the gumption to get on a bus to travel cross country which would take a good deal of free will on its own. The one thing the movie gets perfectly right is the sensory overload to a new visitor to Times Square, giving some idea that the woman is from a less populated area and by her dress, very conservative. But her lack of hopelessness, desperation or anger do not give any indication that she would resort to such senseless violence. Her hyper-politeness clashes with the profile of a suicide bomber(The fellow members of her cell also act very considerately towards her...) in that she seems so afraid of hurting someone's feelings that she would never be rude on purpose, much less wish to blow them to kingdom come.
