After finding Albert Einstein's journal on his still unsolved Unified Field Theory, Jack becomes obsessed with analyzing time and theorizing its connection to his supernatural experiences, his surreal dreams, and his perception of reality, only to lead to the discovery of the biggest mystery of all - himself.

Geez, only ONE comment so far...???
14 January 2009 | by (Sunny Southern California, USA) – See all my reviews

That surprised me all right; I would have thought that at least this film would provoke more reaction / discussion. Okay, the other guys comments are a TAD harsh... The substance of I guess I agree, but I think it could've been put a little better.

First off, Definitely an 'A' for visuals and for the DP! Absolutely! And, except for the EXTREMELY annoying and COMPLETELY distracting audio during the first half of the film (MAN, the microphones sounded like they were implanted in the actors' larynx for God's sake! You could hear EVERY bloody smack of their lips and tongues. HORRIBLY distracting from the film mate, sorry! Also EVERY bloody sound, footstep, box scraping across a surface, key in a lock, DAMN! WAAAAAAAAY to loud in the mix man. Terribly detracting from the film...) the actual soundtrack and background ambient sound was GREAT! VERY Lynchian. (Sorry about the worlds longest parenthetical insertion there : ) BUT! And it is a BIG BUT like Mariah Carrey's, sadly those of us who totally LOVE films like this or ones that look and sound like these, do indeed expect a bit more substance. In other words Lynch's stuff no matter how way out always seems to have at least SOME kind of internal harmony or outworking logic of the subconscious, that gives it some kind of visceral 'weight'. However, sort of along the lines of the other reviewer here, the net effect I feel in my lowly and wretched opinion, is just sort of an 'aimlessness'. You really did honestly NAIL it in many places; I mean, most film makers can't even come close to that as you did. My most humble suggestion is that if you are going mainly for the complete ART look and feel, in other words a COMPLETELY abstract or surreal film, then I believe you need to dress it up a bit more with stronger mood enhancers, a la a tiny bit more visual manipulation / style.

I think what I'm trying to say is, if you're gonna keep it all subtle and low key with long drawn out passages like Lynch for example, then you need to give the mood and atmosphere a bit more punch. If you wanna emphasize the narrative a bit more then, as the first reviewer was putting across in his sledgehammer way, I would say, try to come up with a bit more substance. That's about the only way I can put it, for what that's worth..

But, you absolutely held our attention for the most part with the look and feel and for the most part the sound of your captivating film. But, I do feel that there IS indeed genius there, lurking about in that creative mind of yours. Just a couple of very small things, if I may... One, I personally would not have had the clock that he finally fixed come crashing down onto the floor. Very jarring to the overall mood of the film and I honestly did not feel it contributed anything, instead it detracted from what you had worked so hard to construct. Secondly, him throwing that extended fit at the end also I felt took away from the smooth ambiance that you had created throughout the film. Those are the only 'glaring' things I would personally have taken out, oh, and the INFINITELY annoying exaggerated sound of the peoples voices and other mundane sounds during the first half. Your sound editor must've been doing some SERIOUS crack during the first half, is all I can figure : ) So, that's why I only gave it a 5, sorry about that :( Those detracting elements took away from what easily could have been a 10! (In my uneducated and likely unneeded opinion : ) But, all in all, VERY nice effort and LOTS of good creative imagery; I absolutely LOVED the ambient background sound, sort of the low key 'industrial' sound you usually hear in Lynch films. Keep up the good work mate! If you wish to write and comment personally, please do so; I THINK my e'mail address is listed here...
