First you think "what the hell?" and then you think "YEAH!!"
This is really worth seeing. It's hard to explain why. There is no plot. There is no character development. There is a lot of beautiful surrealism. Like with anything from Dada and related art, the full effect only hits you after you stop asking "Why?" and "Whaa?" and "What the hell?". When you past that point, you'll have a great time.
The charming nihilism captured in the movie is something that we couldn't duplicate nowadays, even if we tried.
