The Child Remains

It is somewhat of a slow-burn , and has a lot of imagery and story, but then takes a sharp turn into an inferno.. It's normally hard to pull something like this off in an indie production, but this film came together very nicely. There are a lot of cut scenes, and different artistic direction taken in shots from different characters' perspectives, and they were all done well. Nothing seemed out of place at all. Given the many different perspectives that were used, this film did a great job with pain...
