    I thought this film was entertaining and I appreciated the inclusion of the real life dance performances. Colour has been used well and the mood for the piece is enhanced by the music and choreography. It is great to cleaver collaborations such as this.

    Eloquent in expression and production. To me, this film brings the concept of multidimensional reality to screen. Thru juxtaposing different technical genres with the movement and expression of dance, the viewer observes the experiencing of many different aspects of the self at the same time. Trancending the idea of linear time we are led to believe that there is more to the space we physically fill than we can physically perceive. I could also call this flick :"The Evolutionary Theory"..Well done Richard beautiful creation of a beautiful mind.

    A beautiful rendition of the muti-layered life we inhabit, of the prismatic dimensions of being and the fluidity of self and the world surrounding us. Great work, Richard!

    E.T. makes mind boggling existential questions (who are we? What is real?) into a playful dance/visual journey. The use of transformation and fluidity in the film's aesthetic is very effective. The sound track and the musicality of the editing exceptional. E.T. manages to take away the established boundaries (such what is inside, what is outside) and creates space for new perceptions and insights, in a very accessible way. Great work!
