End of Summer: Directed by Jóhann Jóhannsson. Shot on black and white super 8 film, ‘End of Summer’ is a hypnotic and slow-burning journey through the austere landscapes of the island of South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula. Filmed as a series of mostly static tableaux over a period of 20 days during the waning days of the Antarctic Summer, the film is a startling look at life at the edge of the world.

“I can understand the confusing reviews probably come from a mindset of expectation from the movie, considering Iliza was in it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAlthough many including myself may have looked forward to a goofy, lighthearted laugh, I have to say the story had an abstract depth to it from a psychological point of view. In some ways it touched on some serious issues some of us deal with in relationships, not realizing the overtness in agendas of partners in them. In some ways also, the elephant in the room was addressed. Full marks for that.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThat said, Iu0026#39;m not sure if the director even realized the power of the script. I felt as a movie, this was all over the place because it touched on so many different societal issues.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMaybe the focus could have been on narcissism and how to deal with the trauma it brings to those who donu0026#39;t realize it. Maybe this could have just been one of Ilizau0026#39;s (love her to bits) stand up episodes, I donu0026#39;t know.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWatch it if youu0026#39;re able to switch your expectations. Itu0026#39;s a good one with a very important message. Donu0026#39;t watch it if youu0026#39;re expecting tears from guffaws.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis is a strange one. I liked it though.”
