Truly, madly, deeply awful. Please God someone tell the director how to make a film.

Spoiler Alert:

This films is absolute sh*t.

It's a real case of the emperors new clothes. Having worked in the film and TV industry for 22 years I know a lot of technician and actors. and I know a lot of technicians and actors who have worked with The Director Joanna Hogg. They all laugh as she is considered to be truly appalling as a director, she doesn't plan, isn't inventive, doesn't block actors well, or give good direction, she has no originality and everything she has was created by someone else and has absolutely no understanding or lighting, camera or editing, an absolute nightmare.

Please Joanna, tell me what it is you bring to the set?

But apparently this is OK according to the critics who for some reason applaud her minimalist ability.

Very much in the same way that a child might scrawl some green crayon on a canvass, and then an art gallery owner might decide to hand the scribble in his gallery so to do the critics laud this scribble.

As a technician I can see actors looking for marks, stumbling over each others lines, whilst clearly improvising lines that don't quite make sense. I see poor framing and bad lighting, I see the camera work is tedious, the editing perfunctory, in my head I keep saying, "Cut, cut, cut, please for the love of God cut." and it still won't cut.

The script is woeful in it's sheer lack of content, I swear that if it was written out it'd be about 50 pages.

Archipelago was truly insulting to film makers and crew, and this is worse.

Please Joanna stop, just stop, you have no talent and no vision, you are a waste of digital resources when we could be watching something else like best of face palm on you-tube.

You have been warned. This film is sh*t.

one year passes...

I love music, it's one of my biggest passions. Even genres i absolutely despise (like country), i still can tell why some people would like it. I can be objective enough when it comes to music and even hear why some songs are good even though it's not my genre at all. But sorry, this stuff is just nonsense.
