I rented this movie from the video store because I noticed Danny Glover was in it. I picked it up trusting I would not be disappointed. It also introduced me to the lovely Meadow Williams. Had I ignored this movie I might not have been made aware of her.
This movie will not "entertain" people in the way most desire a movie to do. It will make you think, then it will make you wonder, "What the heck just happened? What is going on?" About twenty minutes into the movie you won't be certain if you are watching a movie, or a dream.
There were some things that struck me funny. The cab numbered 666 made me smile. Pay attention to the conversation inside the cab.
Then there is the suggestion our main character was murdered, but then we see him at the police station answering questions. Oh, and look for the watch that always shows midnight.
You will encounter a cop that accepts a drink while on duty, and a woman who pays the main characters rent which makes him a main suspect in her murder.
I think once in awhile everyone should watch a movie like this instead of the usual fare that always leaves you with a clear explanation and a nicely wrapped up ending.
In fact, I am chuckling as I write these words knowing someone who watches this movie is going to let out a yell in disgust at the ending. I can almost hear them saying, "That's it? That's the ending? What the hell kind of movie was that?" I actually laughed at the ending knowing it will mess with some people's minds. You might not laugh when its over, but I guarantee it will stir your gray matter.
You need to have a sense of humor and a penchant for mystery to enjoy this movie. If not, don't bother with it.
