Dark satire
5 June 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I think the whole point of this film is to play with truth and fiction. It's full of 'winks' to the audience and that's what makes it great. The entire opening scene is pure comedy. The only reason to be angry is if you didn't get that from the beginning but if you see the characters and what they do, it should be obvious. You're not in normal sci-fi territory here and of course, if that is what you need then you will be disappointed. However, this film is designed to mess with that expectation and replace it with something more human and poignant. This film isn't supposed to be about alien existence, it is about human communication (hence- 'Messengers'). At that, it's unlike anything I've seen.
