As Seen On
Set in the late 1980s and shot with a gorgeous and evocative style, director Derek Kimball captures the rugged and fiercely independent atmosphere of Maine...
...With painterly photography that turns the world into an almost impressionistic landscape and a lyrically moving camera as comfortable following a character as it is framing their face dead center, Neptune is a lush picture that thrives in the quiet moments...
Richly photographed... the film is powered by the sumptuous aesthetic vision of quiet, blue-tinged oceanside unease that Kimball and his cinematographers, Jayson Lobozzo and Dean Merrill, who use natural light and a willingness to plumb the depths of night exteriors, are able to mine for great effect.
