Movie Info

As the deadliest natural disaster in US history strikes Galveston, Texas, taking ​ between 6,000 ​and 12,000 lives, a mysterious televisual device projects images of unknown origin. Blake Williams' experimental 3-D film immerses us in the storm's aftermath, at every minute represented by remarkable and mysterious sights of one world nearing destruction as another emerges. A consideration of technology, cinema, and the medium's future, ​​ PROTOTYPE is equal parts dense and fleet - an unprecedented experience with no clear ancestor or likely successor.

Williams's project is far from a political statement, at least in the explicit sense. Instead his vision is grander and all encompassing.

It's hardly a conventional political film, but it is anything but removed from the world we live in. In that, it evokes Véréna Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor's "Leviathan."

3D, once a novelty, has become a boring and overused gimmick: this is a rare chance to appreciate it anew.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

An example of 3D at its most inventive, artistic and adventurous, it's an audio-visual assault of the mesmerising type.
