Plot and character sketchiness aside, though, Vanishing Waves is incredibly absorbing, because Buozyte and Samper are smart about how sexual urges can override all reason and obligation.

A scintillating sci-fi throwback, Vanishing Waves draws inspiration from Stanley Kubrick and Andrei Tarkovsky, among others, but without feeling plagiaristic.

Buozyte and her co-writer and "visual style author" Bruno Samper make the most of pricey-looking production design, cocooning their leads in soft white light, prowling dolly shots, and shimmering special effects.

Writer/director Kristina Buozyte creates some stunning dreamscapes and puts together the shared-experience sequences with a real freshness.

Excellent production values and a standout performance by Jurga Jutaite as immovable victim and movingly vulnerable dream girl...make this one to catch

There are interesting themes: about how much of the impulse to love is hidden from the conscious mind, and how much of sex is fantasy. But the impact is diminished by lifeless leads.

This Lithuanian love story from Kristina Buozyte offers a discomfiting blend of visual ecstasy and narrative sterility.

It's derivative to a fault-but a deserved midnight-movie cult following is all but assured.
