I liked this for about the first half – the repetition of her name that slowly morphs made me think about those times when words start to sound funny when abstracted. This combined with the images of a young girl gave me a nice impression of malleable identity and self questioning. But then it overstayed its welcome and I never wanted to hear the name Oona again.

I liked about half of the film – the more lyrical imagery based parts – but when it cut back to the people talking I was generally bummed. Why is it that all people seem to talk the same in these movies? Slightly hostile while rambling about what sounds to be a satire on academics.
