A tremendous debut feature film from Sarah Watt.

Look Both Ways is a solid debut feature, with strong performances and an unusual script. It might focus on themes around death, but it\'s certainly not all doom and gloom and Sarah Watt cleverly merges humour with the bleak. The combination of animation with live action makes the film especially memorable. Using animated sequences to represent the characters\' inner thoughts, shows ingenuity. It\'s a daring approach, and elevates what could have been an ordinary film, into an engaging, uplifting experience.
