An experiment that fails
18 March 2007 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Yeah, I got it. It took a torturous 1-1/2 hours to get there but I was spared the 26 minutes more that others had to suffer through in the original cut.

Strange camera angles of pumping gas, lying in hotel rooms,urinating, eating, driving, driving, driving. Crying, hugging women wordlessly. Driving Driving Driving.

Yeah, the fellow is grieving a lost love with a flower's name, yeah, he's attracted to other women with flowers' names. Yeah he was sorta responsible for the loss of his love. B-b-b-b-ut we never know what that love was all about, was it as shallow as depicted here? You can't care about the main character, how can you. You know nothing of him.

This is one of the most self-indulgent movies I've ever seen. With a money shot at the end.

Avoid. 2 out of 10 for the Gordon Lightfoot song on the soundtrack.
