MOVIE: "The Spirit of the Beehive"

You are reading

It's a real purdy movie. Great lighting. Terrible sound (full of pops and clicks). Showed same cloud over moon two nights later: that's lazy.

This, my dears, is a 10 minute short story, stretched out excruciatingly into over an hour and a half.

Spoiler alert: absolutely nothing happens for over an hour, and it happens to a total stranger we first see apx. five minutes before!

All actors appear drugged: everybody moves so slowly and takes so much time to stare, dull eyed, at not much. THe most expressive being in the entire piece was that poor, strangling cat.

Speaking of animals, some wild creature barks and chirps through the entire movie. I don't know if it's a bird or a squirrel, but I could have used a close up at some point, so I wouldn't be obsessing through every outdoor scene as to what it might possibly be.

Very beautiful and totally vapid.
