On the surface, there's not much special about this movie. Simple dialogue, simple story, bare sets. But the brilliance of this movie is that it's all done in a single take! That's right! The camera starts rolling and doesn't stop until 85 minutes later.
I first thought about the length of a take while watching one of the Kill Bill movies a few years ago. There was a long, elaborate fight scene and I realized that camera never stopped rolling. I don't remember how long it was, but it was pretty impressive. Then I watched Russian Ark, which was an elaborate single take film. It tried to make up for its lack of a story with the huge cast and elaborate costumes and sets, making for a rather dull movie.
So this is not the best movie you've ever seen, but for the sheer guts of filming a feature-length film in one shot, PVC-1 deserves a look.
Bottom line, 3 stars.
