The sharp edge of "Fight Club" mixed with the claustrophobia of "Buried" and the wit and philosophy of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas"
17 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'This Is Not A Movie' an almost perfect drama comedy there was just something about it. The film is not for the average film goer its very cerebral and complicated.

The film is a very will made movie the writing is brilliant and witty the acting is all around good, the look and feel of the film has a very dark an beautiful tone, Edward Furlong is perfect in this role of a paranoid man with many deep questions that he wants answers to and he only has 48 hours to figure them out without leaving his Vegas hotel room.

Like the Takishi Miike film 'Visitor Q' its a straight forward film where you know what is going on and you know the point of it all but it is still confusing you and you might have to watch the film over again. The film is very funny and well made and even very relate able for those looking for a good film that is cerebral, surreal and a great satire about modern society. 9/10

Similar films: 'Vistor Q', 'Bad Boy Bubby', 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' and 'Eraserhead' to a point
