Sweet Apparition (2008)

"Frater’s Sweet Apparition condenses two kinds of durations. Both the duration of the sugar cube melting and the perceptive duration of the viewer. What we might cruelly call the viewer’s tenure of endurance. We can see then that this duration is a potent filmic device capable of inducing certain conditions in its audience."
