Nocturnal perfection!!

Now,this is something else indeed!!This is a masterpiece that is so vicious,dark,wondrous,unique,and truly poetic,that it left me completely flabbergasted!!The theme underlying the various images we are presented to,are as follows:The human brain is divided into two hemispheres,right and left.The left hemisphere represent logic and rational thought,whereas in the right hemisphere,dwells passion,creativity,intuition,and irrationality.The interesting question that are being asked,are;what if the right hemisphere were to completely dominate the thought-process?What if our internal "demons"were to be given free reign?What if we could kick little Mr.Logic to death?It is such a joy then,to see that the brilliant Karim Hussain and co.have constructed a satanic-dream-come-true,as an unflinching and blasphemous reply!!

It is stated somewhere that this film is meant to be pro-religious.What does this imply exactly?Certainly this statement rings true,if we take a closer look at the basis of all religions,which is exactly passion and irrationality!!And we all know the great "passion" that have been injected into the despicable witch/heretichunts and the crusades throughout the history of man.But which is it?Is it really a warning against letting our religious/irrational emotions get the better of us?And telling us to return to morality and dogma?If that's the case,then this is a blatant contradiction.If religion represent one aspect of irrationality,and as I've said irrationality is to be avoided,one would have thought that man's safe-haven would have been the right hemisphere,where logic and rationality resides.But then a return to morality and dogma is ridiculous,because that is religion for you,and religion is in it's very nature irrational.The result is that one has been going in circles,from avoiding passion and irrationality,to fully accepting them,in the dangerous and horrible form of morality and dogma,which is when you think of it only more commonly accepted.

As long as one have a religion to back up your violence and mad rantings,then it's justified isn't it?(Just take a closer look at what seemingly "logical" acts have been perpetrated in the moral-name of religion,the list is endless!!)In the end you are fooling yourself,in the end you are being just as irrational as the demon or the murderer.The major difference being;one has the guise of hypochrisy,the other is naked.I personally prefer the naked shape.As I said,I prefer to view this piece of art with the outlook of a free and passionate being(religious people would call this satanic,I guess),without the subconscious need to deceive myself.I viewed this film as a nocturnal perfection,wonderful darkness on celluloid,if you will.Everything is simply intelligent artistry;from the truly somber and ferocious "Human Larvae",the beautiful opener "Ovarian Eyeball",the surreal "Rebirth",to the profanating brilliance of "Right Brain/Martyrdom".The musical score is excellent,the same goes for filming/editing,special effects,and last but not least,the dialogue.You must all believe me,when I say that you have never seen anything like it,and most likely never will!!
