I've read the positive reviews posted before mine, but all I can take from this movie is a headache...a ton of pretentious and long-winded dialogue is all you get in nearly two hours of this movie. The cinematic techniques of the filmed video and off-color lighting are interesting and the attempt at creating different psychic spaces with these effects is noble, but in the end the movie is just two people going on and on and on, when in reality one would have just screamed "Get lost!" and left.
