I just watched it on Canadian Netflix.  Commments? Plus/Minus/Interesting?

Plus: It had a sense of humour that was VERY Russian. I liked how it took overused North American cliches and turn them on its head. The sound track made a hell of a soundscape.
Minus: the shaky-cam makes the Blair Witch Project look positively smooth. If I had watched this on the big screeen, I'd have gone running to the exit (with a splitting headache).
Interesting: Are you aware of other attempts at the point of view (that were successful)? The original RoboCop from the 1980s was the only one that I could remember.

I'm a stand-up philosopher until 2024. Then, I move onto my next gig. I'm a gentleman forester and farmer. I also enjoy jumping into Lake Huron and panicking the fish.
