CGiii Comment

Seriously...this is special. So much so...we're going to be a little harsh...because, Cognitio could be an absolutely blistering feature.

The music is fantastic. The boys' beauty...incontestable. However...split screen [aaargh] and the editing is brutal, you can't just cut to black. Saying that, it does work - brilliantly - in one scene.

The potential for this film is immense. With work...it could become an absolute classic.
