Most Beautiful Island

Most Beautiful Island ★★★★

Big dreams

Minimal, taut & sweat inducing. Trusting people is always a risk but sometimes it's all you can do. Sometimes it pays off and sometimes it doesn't. This was brilliantly done. Reminded me a bit of Julia Loktev's Day Night Day Night. Somewhat lost & desperate women embracing anonymity in the Big Apple, frantic but silent, seemingly revoked of their agency, on their way to do something potentially life changing. The pace is similar too (so are the posters lol). The cause for desperation is less opaque in this one though.

Am definitely anticipating Asensio's next project whatever it may be.
