Critic Reviews for The Challenge
At first glance the film makes a knockout impression, at once showy and enigmatic. But as it proceeds, dishing up more idiosyncratic imagery but absolutely no insight, the spell may begin to pall for many viewers.
Composed over three years, The Challenge is elegantly distilled, each image deliberately framed, the rhythm alternating between meditative tranquility and flurried agitation.
... provides an immersive and fascinating look at a subculture of modern excesses clashing with cultural and spiritual traditions.
Thanks to an opaque narrative and slow pacing, The Challenge will test your own endurance, but a cult following seems likely.
It's hard to say whether this is an unusually sheened documentary, an art piece that uses aspects of the real and transforms them radically, or a highly formal visual poem. But it's a strange and beautiful thing: to use that word again, fabulous indeed.
