Heady, evocative exploration of the subconscious
16 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

The interior life of a lonely man is examined through the bizarre things that occur in his daily life, leading to a realization about his past. The depiction of his existence is authentically dream-like, yet encourages us to accept it all as reality, which makes this unique effort one of the more interesting short film efforts, with terrific performances by the leading actors. The film is also beautifully photographed, and contains odd and sometimes disturbing images which will remain in the viewers' subconscious well after seeing it. These "weird" images fit right in to the questions the film requires you to ask, such as: what is the human mind capable of experiencing, and how much of it is utterly real to everyone concerned?
