Fugitive Dreams May be the most beautifully made movie playing at this years Fantasia International Film Festival. If it does get eligible for Academy Awards it should be up for best cinematography. The blocking of the film is incredible and is one of the better play adaptations of the year.
The set designs are beautifully crafted if I was in charge this movie would be getting a wide theatrical release. Everything from the performances to the directing. It’s one of the top five movies at Fantasia International Film Festival. Where we saw recent favorites The Oak Room and Dinner In America.
One thing that stood out to me about what made Fugitive Dreams so special was the way the editing was done, having the aspect ratios switch from full screen to half screen and the way it shifted to black and white and color. The editing was just so top notch and everything about this movie will blow a lot of people away. I hope it finds its audience and it will be appreciated once it does.
Overall grade: 4/5 stars
