    A surrealist romance with poetic imagery and reaching moral questions.

    Villeneuve is getting a little better, but his best work is still ahead of him.

    Here I am, finishing the filmography of Villeneuve with one of his first works. "Maelstrom" is abut the randomness of life and death. Probably nothing that I didn't see before, but I guess that a talking fish and some good music can go a long way (at least once).

    Unusual drama with darkly comedic undertones (overtones?). Quirky exploration of depression, guilt, and loss. Worth a watch. Oh, and it is narrated by a fish head

    Denis Villeneuve film I saw years ago. Simple story, realism except for little flaws. I think the theme is cruelty, whether willful, accidental, or naive. I like the idea of the double guilt we get to compare. Good work announcing better to come.

    Even though I found the story uneven, the focused look at devastation is strong here. The over exposed look also helped achieve that.

    A more grounded and ambicious flick, Villeneuve's second film plays with several plot devices that, effectively, works on favour of a movie with great visuals and substance, although the rythm and some music selections don't quite work.
