The whole thing moved in leaps like a dream. Full of extraordinary images, sustained silences and tightening terror.

Stick with the slow-starting Shooting the Past...Not as profound as it thinks it is, but ingratiating and even suspenseful.

Audience Reviews for Shooting the Past


Interesting. The photos in this are extraordinary. The movie itself was a little slow, and rather anticlimatic.
