The Extraordinary Child

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 18, 2015

This strikes me as a really dumb film, and not in a good way. The director leaves his actors hanging. They appear to be trying to gesture over the lack of a soundtrack, which is something he hasn’t had trouble with before. On the other hand, he is making films with his friends, which may be more important than most or all the industrial that we mostly attend to. Further, the silhouette shots are very good.
