Rarely has a movie made me concurrently gasp in disbelief and drunk with joy. To merely say I enjoyed "Run Lola Run", would do a great disservice to how I truly feel about this masterpiece. It's exhaustive frentic energy was so addictive that I didn't want it to end. The synergistic combination of sound and image perfectly mesh to create a state of uneasiness which was thoroughly enjoyable. "Run Lola Run" is a drug I wouldn't mind being addicted to.
