Imagine a typically vacuous, dreamy teenage girl (who, incidentally, abandons her family like a selfish imbecile in order to pursue God knows what moronic idea of "personal freedom" she may have gotten from feminist magazines or retarded modern pop culture). Imagine her constant, never-ending stream of thought, jumping around randomly, pointlessly, from one nonsense thought to the next, all wholly unrelated. Now imagine you're stuck in her head for two hours and forty minutes, where every such inane thought is expressed in painful, ceaseless voice-over.
"I wonder where dad is. Is he seeing the same stars I am? I have decided to be more connected to myself. I went to this man's house, there were pictures on the wall. Probably his family. I was moved."
The other characters, when they briefly take the spotlight, are no different. You are treated to the NEVERENDING STREAM OF THEIR EVERY SINGLE STUPID THOUGHT!
That's this movie. Nevermind the horror tag, there is nothing horrific about this film except the utter realization of how lucky you were to not have been born the weaker, mindless sex.
