Great art is open ended, and such are the works of Ramzi Abed.
Abed's films offer the viewer the opportunity to detach from them self and to escape this world for a little over an hour.
Expect nothing when watching an Abed film and you will have everything.
What can I say about The Black Dahlia Movie? I have no idea what that was going on during the film AND YET IT WAS AEWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How does that happen? How does a filmmaker take on us a journey with no clear destination and still entertain us? Perhaps it's best not to think too much about it, or life in general.
Abed is a genius. Watch his films!
