Eccentric, experimental and great!

Fine almost-psychedelic-oriented comedy about romance, struggles in art work and just loosing your mind (and finding it back). The meaning of the word tells it all. Dorff offers a great performance. U2's performances in the movie are in the right spots and at the right time. Very experimental yet great results.

Entropy is a must for people who like the first stages of Tarantino, the visual experimentation of Olver Stone and the hilarity of Woody Allen (strange but rather great mix!).

I find it mind blowing that the plot begins with the narrator in an awful shape explaining the story and then gets to meet his own character and the movie goes on!

The ending leaves you with a melancholic feeling because all us who are still attached to this world have experienced the "Entropy" after an intense experience what ever it was.

See you in the journey to forever!
