By the end, I didn't know what to make of it, but now I understand the film much better. This film is must viewing, it brings out the truth about today's world - Nothing but material values matter, we live empty lives, we think empty thoughts, we are empty people, life is boring.
Christian Bale is awesome, quality acting! Willem Dafoe was underused, I didn't think the support cast had the same quality material as Bale.
The photography is stylish, very 80s gloss!
The direction is terrific, wonderful camera work.
Overall, see it, it's satire, black comedy, social commentary and more!
