Watch: Piercing Brightness 2013 123movies, Full Movie Online – Piercing Brightness is a science fiction film directed by internationally acclaimed artist Shezad Dawood. The film utilizes science fiction as a backdrop from which to contest fixed notions of race, migration and identity. The plot interweaves elements of documentary, within a character-driven narrative involving the different and changing communities in Preston, in the North of England and points to Lancashire’s position as having the highest UFO sighting rate and the fastest growing Mainland Chinese population in the UK. The film combines digital and analogue processes, high production values and low-fi aesthetics to tell a story through both its narrative and distortions of time brought about by experiments with the various formats used. The story begins with Jiang and Shin, a young Chinese boy and girl, who land in a spacecraft outside of Preston. They have been sent on a mission to retrieve the ‘Glorious 100’ – agents who were sent to this planet millennia ago to study and observe. Living through countless lives without any scope for return, many have become corrupted, forgetting their original purpose and slowly becoming influenced by and in turn influencing their adopted home. Jiang and Shin negotiate uneasy alliances as they try to pursue their mission, constantly pursued by a hooded bike gang. The film comes to a dramatic close on the roof of the controversial brutalist structure of Preston Bus Station roof, the setting for the ‘Extraction’ of the Glorious 100..

A film with a message
This film does have a message: the message being …… AVOID

I’d seen the reviews on here but was prepared to give it a go and LoveFilm had no problem with that. Whilst its only 80 minutes long – I lasted 15 and boy, they were the longest 15 minutes of my life and I hope they’re not THE 15 minutes the famous wig on a stick spoke about. I’m all for ambiguity, jump cuts, static, vertical hold shift, non- narrative, but if it hadn’t been for the sticker on the Lovefim DVD case I would have been none the wiser for being none the wiser. I’m sure this wowed the lecturers at film school, and whilst I’m not asking for a car chase or even Danny ‘Gor Bless Him’ Dyer, I wanted, nay, needed some raft of hope to cling to. But, rather like the bloke in Titanic,I was still clinging, but the cause and all hope had been lost ………

Shezad Dawood’s Cinematic Offences
#1 A Movie should have a Plot That Actually Makes Sense

Right. Two aliens land on earth to collect a team that had been sent down long ago to study and watch us. I get that. Some of the team has gone “native” and doesn’t want to go back I get that too. But why were they all sent to London? We don’t know. Why don’t they want to go back? We don’t really know? Why are they all being forced back? Don’t know. Why can some remember who they were and some can’t? Ibid. WTF is going on with the alien support group??? Don’t even get me started. Why did the alien’s daughter dissolve? What was up with her face??? Why WHY WHY ????

#2 A movie should not conflate style with substance (aka “A Movie is not a Perfume Commercial”)

That’s right – a perfume commercial. In the middle of the far too sparse dialog there appears throughout the movie sudden shifts in imagery with a musical score tuning you in that something significant is being shown. Except it’s not. What was the significance of the Japanese lady who’s face is half formed out of pebbles( or something) that keeps popping up? Why was there an image of a turkey’s head which kept popping up throughout the movie? At least I think it was a turkey. It might have been a vulture. Or maybe a turkey vulture – I Just Don’t KNOW ! Why Shezad Dawood ? Why are you showing me this image. Surely it must mean something? It doesn’t. It doesn’t mean anything at all. It’s just there. Damn you turkey-vulture! You mean nothing to me !

#3 A Chase Scene With Bicycles Chasing Down A Car Is Not Unique – Merely Inane

There is a car chase scene. The car is being chased by alien-hybrid kids on bicycles. That’s right – on bicycles. Not even racing bicycles but the kind of high-riser your little sister might have. I’m pretty sure that I saw tassels. I think the chase scene lasts a good ten minutes. One of the characters actually says (anxiously) , “They’re getting closer!” Ten minutes. I can say no more.

I could go on but I don’t have the heart. I’m pretty sure there were some scenes meant to have comedic value. An alien goes into a bar and gets drunk … ha ha. Such scenes fell flat. This is they type of movie that some people are going to be afraid to critique properly because it seems somehow avant-garde and they perhaps might be afraid of being outed for an idiot but I am here to tell you that the turkey-vulture has no clothes and that this movie is a piercing waste of one’s time.
