Says Yahoo: "Steve is a great visualist plus he's got this great, twisted sense of humour. Even while writing it, I felt the surreal world of our movie and it's bizarre characters would be best understood if bathed in vivid light and colour to heighten the comedy and tragedy. Steve embraced that as he 'painted' a beautiful movie in which he created old fashioned romantic visuals engulfed in a magic reality view of the world in 2000. Audiences have been astonished by the colour and uniqueness of visuals on this movie and it's a tribute to Steve that he could achieve such a new and spectacular look with our small budget."
