Grounded by the stark physicality of the location and the emotional charge generated by those prison-bound passions (Jean Genet would have approved).
Is it a movie or the best-designed episode of Nova ever?
Problematic on almost all levels.
Involving and affecting even if it is not completely coherent or fully realized.
Carries an air of forced-wit experimentation that never quite gets its anachronisms in order.
Clearly attempting to make the story relevant for contemporary times, they use a variety of stylistic devices that serves to have the opposite effect, distancing us from a story that might have been far more compelling if rendered in a direct fashion.
The problem with Proteus is that the issues tend to overwhelm the story, and one is never fully engaged in the narrative.
David Lebrun's wonderful documentary brings Haeckel's artistic and scientific triumph to life through a beautifully written narration.
Frankly steamed sex scenes spice the film from John Greyson and Jack Lewis, gaining it entry to gay festivals but only momentarily rousing it from the fetid doldrums of a fatiguingly 'instructive' story.
The biggest failing of the movie is that it focuses on the scientific experiments and the facts of the case instead of the emotion of the situation.
An intelligently rendered film (shot on video) that doesn't seek to make its central characters overtly sympathetic even as it stresses the human rights so thoughtlessly or deliberately denied them.
... the story of lust, love and betrayal intriguingly bemoans racism and prejudice of bygone times while peppering the 'history' with more modern references ...
Yuck! What is this thing supposed to be? What it is, is a mess.
