The project was intended to be, as stated, A love letter to Charleston. I thought the highlights of the film were the intimate moments between the filmmaker and his city. Instead of feeling like a third wheel, I felt like I was stealing a glimpse of a city I know through another's eyes. The filmmaker didn't focus on everything that makes up "my" Charleston, and that's what I loved most about the film.
With regard to the "long and slow" scenes, I felt like they appropriately conveyed Charleston's rhythm. For all it's creativity, it's a city in the south and things move slow. Felt right to me.
