Janowski Films presents an urban tale of life and the continuation of time.

The beauty of "Save Postage" lies in the dichotomy between the acts of seeing and watching, listening and hearing, reading and translating, and thinking and feeling all at the same time. The strong forward motion of the film rivals life by the virtue that it keeps continuing whether you understand what is happening or are left totally confused.


Critic's Review

Save Postage
. Because I'm not a film maker I have the unfortunate habit of snapping stills in my head as I watch moving pictures. Yes, I know it is made up of still pictures and my brain is eliding them, but still... I feel I should be more sophisticated. I am discovering lately over and over again how unsophisticated I am in almost every way. But the streaming images of storefronts and countryside (is this local??) really got to me. I make thousands of snapshots in my brain. Well, if I replay thousands of snapshots, I get a movie, don't I?

I loved this.

But in a short while I am going to start repeating myself. This is from lack of sophistication, not because I don't like what I'm seeing, at all. I'm going on here, into the films...
