Well, I finally watched it - and by "it," I mean Electroma (The W at Amazon) tonight. Kim fell asleep. I could understand that.

Clocks in at 72 minutes - with about 6 of what I'd call "plot" and the rest mostly an awful lot of driving and/or WALKING! shots. Now, granted, it DOES set a mood... and man, it's really rather depressing.

Despite the general artsy-fartsiness, however, I DID like it. I dare say I will probably even watch it again!

Let me couch that by saying if anybody besides the Daft Punk guys were behind this, I'm sure I would be REALLY pissed off. This probably means I should work on my biases - either less towards Daft Punk, or more towards proper appreciation of experimental film.

At $14.99 paid (thanks, Best Buy day of release sale!) vs. "what I got out of it" value.....well, I probably overpaid. I would rather have paid the cost of one ticket to see it in a theatre. (Although: If I had taken Kim, we may have moved towards "overpaid" again since it would cost me TWO tix, although I am certain that had she not fallen asleep, she would have been on the positive side of it, so that'd swing us back the other way. This is confusing and getting overly long - I'll stop)

I'm being purposely vague about the film itself just in case you're still interested in seeing it. I would say... rent it. Or borrow my copy!

Did you see it? I'm certain you didn't!

I think CRZ had it right by calling this one forgettable. I thought it started off well enough, but kind of fell off the tracks once the evil seal was introduced into the old folks' home.
