IN PRAISE OF NOTH­ING

OUT 7 SEPTEMBER

Total Film - - Big Screen - Si­mon Kin­n­ear

Writer/di­rec­tor Boris Mitic’s whim­si­cal cine-es­say tells the story of noth­ing, us­ing footage shot by 62 cin­e­matog­ra­phers and a voiceover by Iggy Pop. There’s cer­tainly in­ge­nu­ity in vi­su­al­is­ing the un­see­able, but lethar­gic edit­ing strug­gles to link the images into mean­ing­ful jux­ta­po­si­tions, while the screenplay set­tles for a glibly ironic dog­gerel that smoth­ers its oc­ca­sional in­sights.
