This is not so much a review, it's more a recommendation. I write this mainly because I've read a few negative comments on the message boards.
If you are into popcorn flicks, easy going stories without any deeper meaning, if you are a narrow-minded person..etc. etc (you get the point, right?) If you are any of those, then this movie is obviously not for you.
If you are a searching soul and attracted to the darker and mystical realms of the human mind and understanding of the spiritual language, then you will enjoy this little masterpiece.
