I'm sure most people will find this movie either confusing or annoying, but for me, it has charm. First off, the story is based on a Frederic Pohl short story concerning a man who awakes from a dream and goes through his day. It's the same day, over and over. Another man has figured things out and together they explore a passageway which leads them to discover the stunning truth. They are little robots built to test marketing ideas on. Actually, they were once human but their city was destroyed by an industrial accident and their consciousnesses have been transferred into the little robots. Their memories get erased every night and a new bunch of advertisements are tested.
Well, that will explain maybe the first ten minutes of this movie. Then the auteur's imagination drifts off to other weirdness including a master computer who wants to find God and a space alien who tells him his world has been destroyed and then there's a weird, talkative religious savior who gets shot and finally it seems the whole thing starts over again.
But I like various points along the way such as the monkey men who have an animated discussion and the woman who is a space alien or maybe a goddess.
