This movie was very well directed and edited. It's been 2 years in post production aparrently, but the effort was well worth it. There's quite a lot of visual effects, and the accompanying sound is awesome.
Basically, the film is about a young man's journey to reach an audience with his music. The man (Tommy) has a talent for hearing music where others hear only noise, or none at all. I was impressed with how this was conveyed.
Tommy struggles to find not only a mechanism for getting heard, but a series of personal dramas threaten to consume him as well.
The movie was a fantastic cocophany of sight and sound. While the plot was a little tedious for me, I'm sure it won't affect most peoples opinion of the movie. I'd recommend seeing it.
