I kinda found it reletively engaging.
Some good acting, and editing.
I found this strangely compelling and very memorable. An intriguing concept.
Very different style of film.
Acting was good. The use of space was just right. Editing was pretty good. I wish there was more of story!
This was an interesting film with some fantastic editing, but I really felt like the idea was underdeveloped and relied too heavily on the (admittedly great) visuals.
I saw Grae commenting on the forums about how he had made a weird movie. If this is your idea of weird then you are a depressingly normal person dude!
I think you tried cramming too many characters in here, a little time for us to connect with and understand the motives of the characters would have gone a long way. The character you gave the most time too was ultimately the least interesting(sorry Vanya, great performance though). The highlight of the story for me was definitely the addict, not only did he give a great performance I think it told us the most about the situation they were all in. I would love to see a version of this that isn't crammed into 5 minutes because I think all the issues I have with it stem from trying to get too much done in such a small amount of time.
I think it's all been said already: good performances, solid (albeit derivative) story idea and some interesting visuals - but the "next sacrifice" voiceover was annoying to the point of distraction, and there was a disconnect between some of the scenes. Like, it was interesting to me that the overlord or master was willing to accept one person sacrificing his addiction, giving him an almost altruistic motive, but that didn't line up with accepting a sacrifice of a voice or a bunch of fingers. Some consistency there would have made this a six-star film, even with the annoying voiceover.
An interesting story about addiction and sacrifice in the vein of saw. Nice character development!
Next sacrifice… this film!
