Eden Log

Uncovered Film Review
Eden Log Box Art
I badly wanted to understand what I was seeing, but the curse of Eden Log is that they don't want you to know what is happening at any time during the film. I was willing to stick around, in hopes that the ending would explain everything, including all of the confusing lead up. However, nothing ever really gets explained. All I know is that people get infected, and turn into mutants in this movie - maybe that's all the viewer is supposed to know. I think the best aspects of this film are it's surrealistic visual style, and it's use of sparse dialogue. The creativity behind some of the projected images, as well as the set design and the CGI tree branches, is amazing... no other word fits it.

As far as the dialogue goes... if you don't tell someone this movie has a French cast, they'd probably never know. The dubbing is nearly perfect (Though the dark settings may help)... by the end, I believed they were speaking English natively. Best dubbing I've seen on a French movie, without a doubt. However, It takes more than dubbing and CGI to make a great movie, and this movie feels more like an imitation of Bioshock or Dead Space (Two excellent, and similarly themed video games that were released after Eden Log) than it does a film. For a first directorial effort, it does show promise.
