Is today the day?
I don't know. Maybe.
What's your gut tell you?
That I'm nauseous.
How 'bout less literally...
I'm afraid of deciding.
I'm *not* afraid of either scenario, but it's just - I want this to be something we're doing, not something we're not doing.
What does *this* mean?
This, meaning whatever we decide.

This movie is easily described as cool. You are going to feel somewhat robbed at the end when the idea you are being introduced to is not exactly tied together in the end, but try not to think about that. This movie is clearly experimental. Forget the style and focus on what the movie is saying.
What was the point of the two stories? (those who have not watched the movie yet will understand once you have seen it) One story was a family drama and another was a high energy thriller. Both about them unable to make decisions on life effecting choices. Through both situations we are able to learn about these two people and the difficulties they have trying to behave as one. What results from this is two very believable performances.
These two performers were so good together. Very different Joseph than what we saw in (500) Days of Summer. They behaved like a real couple. You would think they are dating off screen.
The raw style in cinematography surprisingly works well with the melodic musical score. New York City is becoming less of a movie setting, so it is always pleasing to see it still.
Good experimental film. I recommend it.
