Confusing ... interesting... a thinker... cool soundtrack
27 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure I understand this movie, nor do I think I'll ever. Obviously, this movie grasps with deep philosophical stuff we don't normally deal with typical American movies.

This movie really revolves around one man and his attempts to understand himself before the apocalypse... along the way he deals with appearances from his personalities, and he, they, and a ghost, debate about the meanings of life from his Las Vegas hotel room, as... the apocalypse looms in 47 hours and some minutes.

I like Slash's soundtrack... that alone is worth bumping my vote up another point...

The heavy stuff is broken up with promos for hypothetical parody films that make it worthwhile.
