Get in the woods sucker!
7 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great, intricate soundtrack, that is on equal footing with the hallucinatory imagery packed into this 80 minute little gem. Has an enigmatic quality that is missing from so many movies that come out now. Also has some great one-liners ("too much breakfast maybe") and imagery that will stick with you. So many reviews on here get hung up on the plot. Going into this movie looking for a plot is like waking up in the morning and looking for the plot to your life. There just isn't one. All you have is how you experience your world and interpret it subjectively. Why do people demand so much more from film than they do from real life? Do people wake up angry that their dreams don't make any sense, and if so what's that point in that? Glean what you can and go forth.

Where is this 10 Commandments of what film should be that people seem to be referring to when they say what should or shouldn't go into a movie? There isn't one. There are only parameters by which most movies adhere to, so as to please the burping, farting masses in society. Then there films like the Oregonian that shun the template and carve their own footing in cinema. And cinema is all the richer for it.

Cinema is an art form, if you can't appreciate certain forms of it that's on you as an individual. There are no right or wrong ways in film, only ways. Those telling people not to watch this, or any film, is a disservice to all art forms. It's also a very arrogant and selfish perspective on life: "Don't do/see this thing because I didn't like it". Well who the hell are you? And for those who say "there's 2 hours of my life I'll never have back", unless you were going to be finding the cure for cancer in that time, I'm sure everyone's okay with that. People complain about movies all being the same, but once one comes along that's different, it's pounced on by the same people for being too weird. If you want films to break free from the shackles of convention, you need to be okay with them playing out in unconventional ways.

See this movie for yourself. Love it for yourself. Hate it for yourself. No need to appease the brats who can't stand the idea of someone enjoying something they can't get their brains around.
