A Nice Place to Visit, but .......
15 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young man finds an old man, dying on the side of a road. When he goes to a large impressive house to get help, he is "ingested" into a surreal world of open and closed doors and open and closed minds. The place is being ruled over by a giant artichoke who is trying to "balance the equation," hoping to find a reason why humans should continue to evolve. The four people who inhabit the place seem resigned to stay there. We find in time that some of them have been in this place for forty years, yet their physical being contradicts that. In the approach to the house, the young man finds a watch with a picture of a beautiful young woman. This young woman lives in the house and is seemingly terrified. The alien talks to the inhabitants, intimidating and diminishing them. The young man tries to form an alliance with the young woman, with whom he is falling in love, but she knows something he doesn't. The conclusion is pretty much given away early on, but it is an interesting pathway. The whole thing is pretty Freudian, full of doorways, opening to nothing or simply being closed. It's worth the time, though pretty clichéd.
