I've been thinking about this movie a lot. It's memorable. It's flawed because it's experimental. There are some great, spontaneous moments of personality. The actors disappear into their characters in those moments: whether it is someone stepping up to help out, or someone falling from their ...Read more

This film thrives in that it gets character growth right in such a short window. It does so because the real circumstances allow for it to happen, detached from any imitative editing--if the film were edited, it would become a memory of the event, but instead it is the event!

The first time I watched the film I also struggle with the slight ...Read more

Ronald, I urge you to give Victoria a second chance. There are hints to several themes in the first 20 minutes, even in the first 5 minutes, that play out much later in the film. These include taking chances, innocence vs responsibility, celebration vs mourning, and most importantly, human ...Read more
