Wind

Wind ★★★½

First, I wondered what were these three women looking at. Then, the camera panned all around them, completing a 360 degree loop. I was initially bored, waiting for something to happen. When something did happen, I realized my error and immediately wanted the camera to return to our three witnesses. I won't spoil it, but once you've seen it, one can't help but shudder in realizing that horrible things have happened in otherwise serene locales, far too many for one to comprehend let alone count. After the unspeakable happened, the three silent women leave us, further complicating our guilt on watching an unsettling atrocity happen right in front of us. We're left in the stillness and the silence, grasping over our futile state in this barren yet interconnected world of ours.
