If you have 85 minutes to give that you don't want back, this is the film for you.
12 January 2001 | by (Minneapolis, MN) – See all my reviews

The only way to make sense of this movie is to read its reviews, note the simple plot, take careful note of the word "nonlinear," and try to guess how the film could possibly be understood by anyone who does not already have this information. The supposedly symbolic fragments spliced haphazardly throughout the backwards-in-time plot fragments are indecipherable -- as is the sound track. Put this on your "must miss" list!
