First off, I wouldn't classify This film as a movie itself. The audience would be better off if they were informed beforehand that this is more of a collage of videos instead of a movie.
A movie it's supposed to have a narrative, even if the intention of the movie is to be non- narrative. This movie tries to have a diverse narrative and it fails, it fails in the light that the viewer is left with many ambigous scenes without cohesion or coherence -if you may- thus leaving the viewer rendering over the inexplicability of the film itself.
Such construeded errors include such as, having major characters forthwith the film without explaining their repercussions or their individual conclutions -quite frankly this is either bad writing or ill editing-. Another such exemplar of this macabre "story-telling" are needless scenes akin the one showned in the ending, before and, throughout the credits. Such scene -besides being a masterpiece in the art of cerebral felation- has nothing to add or support in the film, thus rendering it obsolete, in this case, editing would have been benefitial.
Although the "movie" did not do all too horrible itself. Actually it has great scenes that are easily magnetic to the viewer, which captives the fascination of human life, and the intricate relations that one as humans have to deal with... Death, love, dispair, trust, friendship, and living.
The main protagonist in his grown state, it's truly an hipnotic character and I do wish to see him in many more films in the future. Equal renditions to the cavaret girl. Both are uniquely splendid.
Overall it's a film that will let you down disappointed, but not because it's a bad film itself. It will let you down, because it's a good film that destroys itself through it's own anarchy.
