It's a movie worth watching b/c it guides you to search your soul in this crazy world.
Kudos to Sarah Michelle Gellar's performance & her agent landing her this movie. Last time I had the chance to view her performance was Grudge 2 and wow she became a serious actress in this one.
Maybe it's the director dared to tone down to sell our her blond pretty girl image. Instead, giving her a chance to be an actress.
Terrific script as it dares to asks us what's the meaning of life, love, reality, ... etc I am as impressed with this script as I was with "He loves me, he loves me not" Terrific music as well. Kudos to the producer to put out this amazing movie during this time of sci-fi, shock em all, trash comedy, soft porn / comedy Hollywood junk food movies
It deserves Oscar or other serious film award. At least nominations!!! Just to show Americans are not lame and stupid!!!
