Goofs

Early in the movie, Marcus opens an old-fashioned, mechanical music box which plays the first few stanzas of the melody to the nursery rhyme "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". Before it plays the last stanza ("Life is but a dream"), however, he abruptly shuts its lid, stopping the music. The next time he opens it, its mechanism should resume playing where the song had left off, but instead it starts over, at the beginning of the song. See more »

Most misleading Title of the Year!
3 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

From the first line in the film it's clear that its trying to give its audience a DEEP metaphysical cerebral experience. The film starts with the actors looking serious, and spooning out deep dialogue about life the world and everything. The kind of stuff stoned first year philosophy students belch out on a Saturday night. As the film progresses we see the actors looking even more serious. The climax of the film is every actor looking serious even the birds seem to have a deep introspective stare. Lets not forget the little whirring machine that appears to be at the heart of it all. I don't know what it does, its never explained, but its DEEP and its serious so that should enough also it spins and whirrs, and that is about as scientific as the film gets.

If you're looking for a film where actors stare a lot and look serious, no plot and incomprehensible dialogue, then you've found the perfect film. Personally for me watching paint dry seems like a roller coaster ride compared to watching this. Oh by the way its go nothing to do with science, the guy is a scientist but might as well be a Russian acrobat.
