Flat, flattened, a collapsing of time and space by a trick of the light, by some post-production voodoo. The walls in this bedroom seem matte. The world outside this room? I believe I could follow a seam until I found a loose edge, then duck behind a landscape as if it were a painted matte. And you? Although our characters have been shot on separate sets, the VFX editor masks us, then sets us down in places, and times, and stories so flatly non-reflective, matte-made that I want to step outside every last frame, undo it.
