VFF Guest Review – Dogwood Initiative’s Gordon O’Connor

■ You Are Here ★★★ — Put your thinking caps on for this one. It’s a slow contemplative movie about the existence of self in a collective consciousness. It is sort of like The Matrix except without the special effects and bad acting from Keanu Reeves.

■ You Are Here ★★★ — Put your thinking caps on for this one. It’s a slow contemplative movie about the existence of self in a collective consciousness. It is sort of like The Matrix except without the special effects and bad acting from Keanu Reeves.

In an era of fast paced, flashy movies that practically assault our senses with 10-second sound bites, it’s a refreshing change to watch a flick that gives you time to reflect on what’s being presented. The plot is woven with riddles that you’ll be challenged to work through — and even though I fell asleep the first time I watched it, I woke up feeling energized and philosophical. Let the red dot guide your attention, but try not to be aware that it’s there. If you are looking for a thoughtful mind bender this one is for you.
