Makes David Lynch seem ho-hum and logical
31 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Although this movie has the look and feel of something a high school student turned in for his film-making class final project, it is worth watching if you enjoy absurd or surreal vignettes. Make sure you don't expect to get anything meaningful out of it, however. It does poke fun at various elements of society -- I especially liked the "emergency broadcast" talk program on the BBC, which was only slightly more bizarre and irrelevant than most of these talking head programs. The Ouija board scenes were also hilarious. In fact, the more I think about individual scenes, the more I appreciate having stumbled across this film.
