ab’s review published on Letterboxd :
Pure cinema. Planes is simply put, the purest form of kinématographic art the world has thus seen.
Do not pay any attention to any of the film's critics. They're all wrong. An epic cinematic odyssey full of gravitas and emotional weight, these ninety-one minutes have some of the most beautiful, solemn, thoughtful, poetic and hypnotic images you will ever see. The film is living photography. It is the film. To call the plot a major part of Planes would be a mistake, it is simply a vehicle for the visuals.
Kinesthetic excellence. Let go of preconcieved notions of what cinema must be and allow yourself to be enveloped in the world this genius auteur Klay Hall has constructed. Simulacra, postmodernism, post semiotics. Adieu au langage.
