“DARK DARK is a ghost dance of narrative gesture melding four found story fragments: Noir, Western, Romance and Chase. The music of Ennio Morricone provocatively interacts with the images, tantalizing the audience with webs of memory, meaning and elusive folly.” AC [Child’s]…editing slays the syntax bound progression that makes narrative film so dull… The edit is a creative act that makes revisiting the work ever appealing and distinct from meal based media.
-Bravo! Willie Le Maitre, Montreal
