The Null Device

I went to see The Virgin Suicides tonight; it is excellent. The cinematography, design and score (by French retro synth outfit Air) combine with the script brilliantly, producing a haunting, evocative, whole. In a way the theme of the film is a universal one; it's about the moments we lose forever but cannot let go of; the things which obsess us, but which we can never fully understand, however hard we try. The narrator's story in the film is an extreme example of something that happens, to some extent, in every life.

All in all, I recommend this film highly. Don't see it if you need cool explosions or car chases though.
