The belle of the ball surrounded by suitors. A vigorous 3-D that can be seen without special spectacles and even by the one-eyed.

When I first got started making films, in a vague sense this is what I hoped for a cinema by which, through interpretation and reflection, the viewer could constitute his or her own aesthetic experience. (...) I hoped that an indeterminate cinema would force the viewer to actively reflect on what they saw on the screen: not just be a passive receiver of images, but make decisions and judgments. I want to give the viewer as much freedom as possible to reflect on what they have seen. (...) Most movies are fairy tales that lead to something. Movies have resolutions. Life is different; it does not seem to lead to anything.
