Enter the void (2010) - TNCC #124
Out-of-body experience POV of a ghost after a boy is being shot when dealing with drugs.
Stunning camera stuff, although they pull some of the tricks way too often. Once you figure out how it works, you get bored by it. Interesting mixture of real, CGI, and other trickery.
I sort of remember the sound being great.
The story, unfortunately also becomes predicable. My wish that the guy could somehow manifest himself gets basically unbearable somewhere halfway in there. When he does - in possibly the most bizarre scene of the movie - I was suddenly totally alert. But very disappointed right after that again.
Cut out an hour and this would be a great film. The ending is a "short film" ending - somehow the whole thing feels like a short film, I just don't know why.
It must have been extremely hard on the actors. But well done.
