was this supposed to make sense?
27 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

After watching this film, I am left completely confused. Normally I do well with confusing films, such as Mulholland Drive, but this was just completely senseless. I felt as though each part was written by someone else without looking at the previous parts, and then they just went ahead and made it without looking at the script at all. I had a lot of hope, coming into this but after about a half hour I was just sitting here thinking to myself "seriously?" There were so many loose ends once this film was over, and the "twists" weren't really twists at all. They were entirely different stories. As soon as a 'twist' happened, i felt like i was watching a completely different movie, none of which had any endings. This movie left me with more questions than it answered. The idea was there, but man, what happened? The only reason I gave this 4 out of 10 is because I saw the potential in the film. Perhaps they should go back and pick one of the many directions they take, and make a better film so we can just pretend this never happened.
