A full house at Dendy Quays cinema 3 were an enthralled audience for Abbas Kiarostami's 24 Frames at the SFF yesterday. Except for the couple who walked out when the seagull got shot and somebody, who surely must have had an urgent appointment who left after Frame 23, the place was like a church.
It is beyond me to try and pry into what the film did but for a superb appreciation of what Kiarostami was trying to achieve, how he did it and some pondering of the nature of digital cinema I recommend David Bordwell's superb blog essay titled "Barely Moving Pictures". (Click on the link)
