My wife is sitting on a chair someplace. Some gray place. I thought she'd be in Heaven, but she's sitting on a chair with a bullet in her head. I thought they'd have cleaned that kind of stuff up.
Maybe you've just eaten too many hallucinogenic cactuses tonight, Hans.
Nothing to do with the hallucinogens.
But you've just seen Myra on a chair with a bullet through her head.
In some gray place.
It seemed a lot worse than that.

Well I'm gonna push my English to the limits to try and express the wonderful feeling I am still savoring. It is all about pieces coming together perfectly in this movie for me. The plot, THE ACTING, the dialogs, the settings etc. Very shortly after beginning of the movie I had gotten the sensation of being in the presence of a perfectly balanced yet joyfully spontaneous story that allowed me the feeling of a real life playing out in front of me however incongruous it might seem. We all search for this in books and movies the story that would just pick us up and take us along on an exciting ride. So few can do that. Immersion isn't that what gives us the most joy in life. Do not expect anything from this movie
