This MIGHT be a great film for you to watch,...if this type film appeals to you
The film may be one you will enjoy, but this really is strongly dependent on the type of person you are. If you CAN allow yourself to see a strange Avant Garde-style film that is reminiscent of THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI, then you might just enjoy this film. Otherwise, it will probably be a very confusing film that only superficially seems like the Poe story. It's really all a matter of just "turning off your brain" and enjoying the strange imagery and bizarre camera-work. It IS very inventive and almost hypnotic at times and looks like a film I would expect to see being played in a gallery of modern art or in a strange little coffee house where everyone wears berets and listens to free-form jazz.
