Wow! So impressive. The cinematography reminds me of Roger Deakins' work on the Big Lebowski, or Barton Fink... or maybe Buno Delbonnel's work on Amelie. Really nice use of soundtrack, to elicit mood and enhance the tempo, as well. I also enjoyed the subtle use of rack focus, when Frankie leaves the science fair, and is being 'tailed' by the purple shirt guy.

Good job, though I saw the plot coming. The imagination you had to come up with this film, was the part I was amazed with. Time; that's a new one!

Amazing plot, never saw the end coming, I loved the old eighties time movie style (well I hope that's what you meant), also with the silent hero sort of thing. Good camera placement as well.

Great use of music, and I like the way the story unfolds, without dialogue.
