"More fun if interpreted as being about all parenting, or mundane hierarchies, instead of the low-hanging, overripe fruits of abusive parents, fascism, or cults. But if the simple targets are where your sights are set, there's plenty to love in the acting and cinematography alone."
||Alps (2011) - Nov 20, 2019
"Alps strikes an interpretatively rich balance between an ambiguous absurdist/existentialist ambience and specific, formulaic character dynamics and cinematic techniques. E.g. the subjects of shots are consistently obscured or out of focus, full context is never given in a scene, and scenes are often edited out in subtle, unpredictable ways, leaving the viewer to experience the same framing/scene in an unfamiliar way. This weird recontextualization of the mundane recalls Camus and Sartre. "
