This non-linear, seemingly experimental film may be a challenge for viewers who are as unfamiliar to the specific tenets of the philosophies of 20th century art movements as I am. While I appreciate what is being conveyed, I felt disconnected to its static presentation, and just couldn't settle into its pacing or patter.
Cate Blanchett, however, is her usual amazing self. If it had been just her in all these different roles without the overlay of the manifestos, I would have been enraptured. But that would have defeated the purpose of this piece!
