One thought on “Flicker

  1. From the first instance this film simultaneously puts you on edge and drags you in to the diegetic world. Tension is unwavering and consistent throughout, and the dystopian backdrop is reminiscent of the troubling ideas that are prevalent in todays society – money is the root of all evil. Cinematography and production value is brilliant, well done to all involved.
