Thoughts on Luz: The Flower of Evil
Thoughts – Luz: The Flower of Evil is a film that will put up the big question about how people will see a God like figure in their world. It will follow the community with their beliefs and does make the point of showing us that we are in a modernish world with a tape recorder in the film, without going into true details. How everything unfolds is how you would imagine when questions come to discuss how the world might be bigger. This might not be the biggest movie, with how deep everything goes, but the unsettling nature of the events will leave the more to what could have been. The settings being used are great with how the isolated the community is with the beauty of nature being involved.
Luz: The Flower of Evil is on digital 26 July and Blu-ray 23 August from Fractured Visions
Final Thoughts – Luz: The Flower of Evil is a spacey God fearing creation.
