ldh's review

A gorgeous film made in 3 parts. The first story is absolutely incredible with absolutely incredible performances. The other two stories are good but not as incredible. This pulls the film down. Finally, even though the film overall looks gorgeous, i really don't like the overall square framing and this took my overall enjoyment down a notch. Done in a more traditional 1.85 ratio, the gorgeous art direction would have been even more gorgeous and the cinematography would have had more room to breath. I find it bewildering that a filmmaker can spend such an inordinate amount of effort making a film so gorgeous, and yes seemingly sabotages it with cinematography and a frame ratio that doesn't fit.
