This micro-budget British indie feels like an unintentional parody of experimental cinema.
The effect is dreamlike, trippy, a saturation of colour and music, not always explained but eventually with an emotional and joyful resolution.
Taylor seems bored by his own story and quickly introduces secondary and tertiary characters of diminishing importance to jolt a line that was doing just fine on its own.
Spaceship could have been so much more exciting and remarkable if it had only dropped its need to be complex and deep.
There is imagination and poetry all its own making in Spaceship.
Alex Taylor's odd, dreamy film slowly comes into its own, due in large part to the director and writer's tonal consistency and an evocative world that's cunningly deceptive in the way it toes the tightrope strung between reality and fantasy.
The performances are thrillingly uninhibited; don't be surprised if the careers of several future stars are traced back to this film.
I don't see real teens buying this.
Channelling elements of Gregg Araki, Gaspar Noé and Harmony Korine, Taylor submerges all this in a wealth of saturated colour, melancholic poetry, an eclectic music track and vibrant visual effects.
Spaceship is laden thick with production design. Locations speak to the film's banal residential setting, while the costumes, hair and make-up veritably bellow, "Yes, we are all individuals!"
A real minority watch that's best filed under 'decidedly different, but definitely difficult'.
For all its verve and creative enthusiasm, Spaceship's oblique and flighty nature leaves it feeling decidedly niche.
