I'll be honest, half of the movie just flowed past me in a hurry. Watching this was like sitting on a beach and watching the waves. A movie that presents you with a whirlpool of ideas and a storm of striking images, this one is a true cult item that goes beyond experimentation. In the 100 minutes, this movie packs an enormous amount of satire and possibly the highest number of genres in a single wrapper.

Certain things will stand out and haunt you forever but certain others, though maybe more important, will not sink in. It is, though, once in a life viewing experience
