  • afuchs's rating of the film Electra, for Instance

    Has a lot of latent cuteness: the comic attire, the sung emails, the disjunct surprising scenes, the guild of cineastes' conjoined efforts and their being nice to each other; one could say "beautiful, complex self-narration --- creation in the act of creating etc." One could also say, "so?" But I did well as I interactively spectated. I knew it's all pixels, but still I'd cheer them up calling out "don't do it" etc.
