Reminded me of Woody Allen in its intellectual humor and slightly surreal surprises with homages to David Lynch and others...I know I didn't catch ALL the references (but I don't catch everything with Dennis Miller either) but it is really refreshing to see a comedy full of ideas instead of the usual lowest common denominator. Also has a really good soundtrack and nice performances from some very appealing actors I'd never seen before.
