Moments of insight flare like fireflies and disappear, whether from underfinancing or overambition is unclear.
Overlapping story threads, voices, and imagery result in an atmosphere of disquieting psychological confusion.
Smart, anxious and weirdly funny, the first feature from Toronto video artist Daniel Cockburn connects a series of scenarios that gradually begin to loop into each other.
Meticulously conceived, shot and edited, it's Cockburn's first feature after a string of well-received shorts, and it's quite the calling card.
It all feels as though a dash of the surreal has been woven into moments of banal human experience to see how far reality bends before it snaps.
Cockburn poignantly finds a strange expression for how people think, the thoughts that we think no one else will understand, and our attempt to interpret the world around us.
A twisted exegesis on the dissolution of identity, the disappearance of will, and, eventually, the loss of mind.
Some will find the film compelling, but underneath the riddles it's basically a self-important proclamation of "who the hell knows?"
If one definition of an "art film" is that you still have no idea what's going on halfway through, then You Are Here is definitely an art film, so successfully does it defy one's need for things to make sense.
Cockburn is inviting us into his head, to think about the things he never stops thinking about. It's kind of nice in there.
A non-narrative, abstract meditation on the processes of the mind that is intellectually stimulating, as well as charming and playful.
This pile of garbage should have seen its death at the Film Festival. Now it will disappoint a larger audience with a broader release. A bunch of disjointed surreal scenes signifying nothing under the direction of one of the most narcissistic people I have ever encountered. May grant money find more rewarding projects.
