Here, here, Brutus,
This review is from: The Shout  [DVD] (DVD)
The Shout is a scandalously under-rated, under-exposed film, but given the awful state of contemporary cinema, particularly fantastic cinema, I'm not surprised. The film harks from the days when audiences had a certain cultural literacy, an expectation of at least some intellectual rigour in a screenplay, and - a quality wholly and worryingly lacking in today's tragic young audiences - patience. Patience to let a curious story unfold; patience to allow the complex, unconscious themes of a drama exert themselves viscerally; patience to be entertained by something beautifully paced, extremely well-crafted and flawlessly acted. But, hey! "Where are the CGIs??" I hear the lost ones cry; shove 'em where the sun don't shine. This is a REAL fantasy film.
