Alejandro G. Iñárritu
Hector Luis Bustamante,
This is a short dance film which clearly has some form of message behind it but its too unclear to give answers one way or another. Of course I've read other peoples theories such as this being a metaphor for therapy but non of which seem completely believable. On the other hand, you could argue the same faults over the end of Birdman- one of my favorite movies- although it was given such mainstream attention, more believable explanations are available
This puzzle is a fun mystery for fans of Iñárritu which will continue to interest me for years. Mainly, what is the point of the floating oranges that the piece is named after? On top of this, the short contains some beautiful dancing and cinematography but as much as i hate to say it, this can only be enjoyed by fans of his other work.
