In Search of Mystery is satirical about movie making, identity and ego maniacs.
Movie Scrutnizer from United States

This is a surreal romp. I think for anyone who is trying to make int he
biz, this is a tongue in cheek look at ego. From the talent, to the
technical crew, all the way up to the executive on the production,
seems that we all need a reality check. No one is perfect so there is
no room for posers who are supposedly better than thou.
Is this the point of the movie? Who can tell, it's also "art". It can
be interpreted freely, that comes through loud and clear for all
intellectuals at heart.
All of the Myster Eys on the way to the conclusion are like fragments
of the soul as it gets tempted by Hollywood style temptation. The lure
of fame and power and whatnot. These many Myster Ey characters or
wannabees could be taken as some sort of multiple personality analysis
(psychologists take note)
Other characters such as the actors and actresses desperately seeking
the amazing Mr.Ey movie mogul, they show the eagerness and naivety of
those in the business. Those who are just waiting to be taken advantage
of all starry-eyed. Some of them are likable, others are downright
despicable and shameless.
For example, there is a goofy actress seeking him, called Yoko. This
character says it all about the ones who are striving to make it in
this crazy industry.
I think the message is that you've got to laugh at yourself every once
in awhile, give yourself a pat on the back, we are all stars. Each and
every one of us in the human race. You don't even have to be in movies.
