Thought it was really good when I first watched it but couldn't really understand why it was quite as highly praised as it was.
are absolutely fucking phenomenal. really revolutionizes how a camera can be used, especially the way the camera moves around the car sequences. it's also a pretty perfect portrayal of a future where we run out of oil or whatever - the only other comparison i can make is cormac macarthy's the road. a world of id cards and national insecurity. gripping and relevant.
I'm ordinarily someone who appreciates the cinematography over and above the narrative of a film but despite all the praise lavished on it here I can't remember anything especially fantastic about it. I think I must have been half asleep or something.
...my favourite part is definitely the underlying concept that if you had no one to pass any legacy on to then the whole fabric of society would unravel. Beautifully shot too.
sad face! fugee face!
have you watched the extras where they explain how the car was made so they could do this?
