Angela McArthur – Rumpus
Visually decadent and thematically magical, the film’s imagery is counterpointed with a form of sonic voyeurism and ambiguity in sound-image synchresis. The over-hearing of intimate dialogue, the seemingly out-of-context sonic bytes caught in passing, the hyper-real details of sounds within noise. To experience the film you must enter into the unavoidable world of voyeurism which headset-viewing requires.
