Fantasia Film Festival: Vessel

July 29, 2013

directed by Adam Ciancio, 2013


Writer and director Adam Ciancio’s Vessel aims to create a dialogue and original discourse between humans and extraterrestrials, a concept explored in many forms and in many films throughout the years, but quite possibly never as hopelessly uninventive as portrayed here. While its conceptual conceits and low budget charm set out to be a welcome addition to this particular sci-fi sub-genre, Vessel never fully articulates its feelings and emotions on the otherwordly and its seemingly life altering affect on the human condition. The film’s creative outlets are specifically whittled down to minimalist degrees in an attempt to bring into focus the film’s human element, one which fails at grasping at any interesting or reflective emotional perspective.
