Michael Almereyda's 'Another Girl, Another Planet' is a very low budget production that is essentially a examination of romance in an urban setting. Shot in a very pixelated, low-budget style, the film follows the central character's essential lack of clarity over the relationships he inhabits. It's a very soulful, genuine feeling piece that uses over-pixelated image perfectly to capture the main character's lack of vision when it comes to his love life. This lack of clarity/sense of confusion among him and his feelings iis captured well. Almereyda really does everything he can to make this ultra-low budget film come to life, using juxtaposition of image such as cartoons on the television, music and other devices to help capture this vast, confusing wasteland which is the main protagonists love life. It's a film that I have a lot of trouble putting into words- it's definitely interesting, just not as eye opening or emotionally resonant as I was hoping for.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
