It has holes and weak spots, but I admire it 's aiming high, and using it's tiny budget to the fullest.
This has more in common with 'The Who Fell To Earth' and 'Solaris' than 'Star Wars'.
It's about a shlub sci-fi geek, who may have found a metaphysical portal to another world, or may just be losing his mind.
Full of interesting images and music, at times it gets too cute or clever for it's own good, at other times it drags, and the acting is uneven, but it's certainly more thought provoking than a lot of what's out there.
I could see re-visiting, and even raising it's rating.
Why? Because after 37 years that I have endured to take watching several awful films, this was the first time that 'leave the theater, now!' crossed my mind several times during the screening. I saw it a couple of days ago in FANTASPORTO film festival in Portugal. The producers and the director where there and said it was a low budget sci-Fi. OK, I thought, I love sci-Fi and I love low budget movies. I have a lot of them. It's got to have some qualities, I thought. Nope, no qualities! I got to get out of here, I thought, this is torture! But I didn't I stayed the whole movie and I regret it. Almost 2 hours! Argh!
I'm not alone on this, several people where smart enough to leave the theater I was not!
