Never really staying in one place for extended lengths of time, Chained For Life lives in a world of multiplicity. This movie inside a movie makes its point through a series of scenes that challenge you to decipher if they are presenting real life or movie scenes or maybe both.
Its comments on how society treats human beauty and those that don’t conform to our rigid expectations is one of the film’s more direct elements. Other than that you are left with a more than an unusual ride. Looking all the world like a lower budget enterprise suits its surreal approach.
Even after giving it a good slosh around the brain, it keeps transforming itself in ones mind. As a starter of that good old fashion post film festival dialogue, it is top notch. Coffee and conversation beckon.
