Tripped Out Journey
29 November 2001 | by DockelektroSee all my reviews

Expected nothing when I was going to see it, came out with something. As tough and extreme this movie is, the message is suprisingly clear and straight-forward. Liked a few shots, and its kind of theatrical presentation of events (no paralel editing, for example). Has some poignancy and many ideas. Great movie.
