Ripley's movie review

As an experiment in filmmaking, this movie is fascinating.

There was no script. The actors were given "maps" and completely ad-libbed the dialogue. The screen is divided in four. Whichever story we are supposed to focus on is highlighted and the sound is turned up. The other stories continue in the background. It also takes place in real time.

I recommend renting it, just for the experience.
