The mind bending triumph of a young cinematic genius

Where to start. That this film makes no conventional sense is beside the point. It's a film that celebrates the by-passing of sense in favour of the synaptic firings of wild imagination and a profound affection for the power of imagery. Julian Baner has written and directed a beautiful calling card announcing his arrival as a serious auteur. Viewers looking for the usual pablum of rom-com or horror formulas won't find what they want here. But cineastes would do well to relax and enter into his puzzling but gorgeous world, safe in the knowledge that they are in the hands of a director who knows what he's doing. Shot in black and white, with DOP Karim Dakkon giving a masterclass in film photography, this is a feast for the eyes. The camera moves and tracking shots are straight out of the Hitchcock playbook and his meticulous approach to shot design is a reminder that the job of the camera is to photograph light, not furniture. The soundtrack is formidable, all the performances, led by the compelling Bry Reid, are brimming with authenticity, and the whole collaborative result left this viewer with enormous gratitude that we have here a filmmaker unafraid to make a serious cinematic statement - and succeeding with an apparently effortless grace and natural authority. To say that his signature is reminiscent of David Lynch or Jim Jarmusch misses the point. Julian Baner is an original. I can't wait to see what he comes up with next. Highly recommended.

What a gorgeous and surreal movie! Very inspiring work with bold choices! The story was compelling and well crafted and it was visually astounding. Excellent performances and a fantastic score as well. The filmmakers have a bright future ahead of them and can't wait to see what they do next!

Mind bending film

Some Southern Waters is a trip, it's hard to describe the films plot as it is often difficult to know what exactly is real and what is not. The film follows Jon a musician who after the death of his girlfriend is haunted by his memories and surreal moments and experiences that echo back to that traumatic event. The film will not give you straight answers, it challenges you to interpret it the way you see fit. The film is shot in beautiful black and white and to say the cinematography is stunning would be a huge understatement. In fact the look of this film is worth the price of admission alone. Absolutely this is a Lynchian style film and I was reminded of that Directors best work while watching this, but also Hitchcock and Jim Jarmusch. Truly a unique experience which for me is the definition of what cinema should be. A reminder that cinema can and should be an art form.
