Against the backdrop of a noirish dreamscape, a tortured man returns to the city he swore he would never return to, in order to save the woman he has always loved yet can never have. Written by
At about ten minutes and eighteen seconds into the film, The Narrator is awoken by a car horn outside the "warehouse". He gets up, on his knees, using the cane for support. Then the camera switches to a shot of Walter laying on the ground, his cane visible and also lying on the ground. In the next shot, Walter's cane is in The Narrator's hand again. See more »
If you don't like to focus on yourself, a rare quality, you might listen to others, an even rarer quality. If you observe and anticipate, you might just get something accomplished.

The film is visually interesting, and has a plot that I found needed a second viewing to fully appreciate. Intellectually stimulating, really gripping make believe.
It is melodramatic and has its flaws. Some of the acting moments are weak, particularly from the lead actress in the finale. Others are superbly acted, and I thought the lead actor particularly well cast. As well as many of the supporting roles. There are gory moments and one particularly memorable chilling character.
Nit pickers won't find perfection here but this is one of few films I've enjoyed re-watching - three times now, and will probably do so again.
