Dream Like? Or just lacking focus? - 2/4/2012 4:36:27 PM

Interesting little documentary about an impoverished seaside town inhabited by social misfits seeking either refuge or redemption from a troubled back story, although itís curious that itís ďdream-likeĒ quality seems to have somehow become a euphemism for being shot out of focus Ė suggesting that thereís an inherent bias amongst some critics for certain fare compared to others. I was prepared to let this go though as the footage captured throughout feels incredibly genuine and didnít at any moment feel staged - that is however until the very end, which includes a flight of fancy set piece involving a fire engine thatís in clear defiance of all the authenticity itís managed to build in the previous ninety minutes and feels needlessly added on to its already music video-esque nature.
