Dog Days (2001)

Gorin was talking about how this film depicted not just overlapping lifelines, but hell.

This is the hell we will inevitably encounter. As a commentary on modern lifestyle, this is the hell that we will all have to face with and the director depicted it in such a hard, raw way that brought direct attention to whatever social truth it was heading towards.

We see overlaps of lives, from physical pleasures, to emotional defeats, we experience a wide range of negative lapses that occur daily. This is just the content of the film, but what this film really is is a portal into what happens everyday, in the private lives of just another person. Sure, these are actors, this is just a film, but it mirrors what remains hidden to us, rather, it unveils what we do not see.
