One man's personal quest for the Romantic's sublimely terrifying experience, 20 January 2002
Author: tostinati from United States

At its simplest, this film gives you greater appreciation of the comforts that surround us every day. Car window not working? Browser crashing on you? Vending machine rob you of 75 cents? You don't have a dreaming clue how bad it COULD be.

I am not sure the makers would have seen it this way, but I see this film, ultimately, as a downer. A day-grayer. After going so deep into gloom and walking around in it for a couple of hours, it has an effect on you. If you are at all like me, you sat pinched, really dreading to find out what is coming up next.

Yet after seeing it, I definitely stepped out of the theater into the frozen weather, feeling warmer, far warmer than when I had gone in. It is a film that makes you actively search for the uplift; a thought-provoking experience.

Ten stars. See it.
