Mr. Wiseman is an artist. His shots are carefully composed and painstakingly edited into assemblages that reveal the layers and patterns of experience. His movies are not raw transcripts of reality, but artifacts and representations, at once abstract and laden with content. You can’t rush through them because the usual temporal maps – the ingrained ideas of structure and sequence that guide you through stories – are unavailable. You don’t know what will happen next, which means you have to give the totality of your eyes, ears and mind to what is happening right now.
–A.O. Scott, The New York Times
