The Fast Runner
is one of the most powerful films I've seen in a long time. It's easily the best film I've seen this year. The photography is beautiful and the story engaging. If it's playing near you
, see it while you can because it's worth experiencing the cinematography on a big screen. The film was shot with digital cameras, so I was a little distracted by the quality at points. But it was filmed in such a harsh environment, that I don't think this movie would have been possible with standard film cameras. Beyond making sci-fi DVDs look crisp, this film shows that digital technology has opened up filmmaking to a wider group of people in more environments. They also showed a few behind-the-scenes clips during the credits, and I can't wait to find out more about how they filmed it. Hopefully the DVD release will include a making-of feature.
