It's all a labored sort of strange, like someone forcing himself to have a bad dream.

As intriguing as the movie is, there's the sense that its free-associative story line has been dredged up from its maker's unconscious and recounted without filter or shape.

A unique slice of Southern Gothic that trades in low-level mischievousness, Septien is the ultimate chameleonic cinematic experience -- it is chiefly what one wishes it to be, based on their mood, and interpretation of its rhythms.

There's an unkillable something at the heart of "Septien," an artistic ambition that's not calculated or cynical, that feels homegrown American but is thoroughly resistant to totalitarian spectacle and the manufactured tides of mass opinion.
