Ok if You have never seen a film by David Lynch, or not seen The Shining.
1 December 2002 | by RalphCifferatoSee all my reviews

I had the unfortunate experience of seeing the Tunnel earlier this year. From the start, the film plays like the pretentious dream child of a self indulgent director. Not only does it try, not very succesfully, either, to rip off auteur of weird David Lynch, but goes one further by trying to replicate the famous bathtub scene in Stanley Kubrick's cult hit, "The Shining". For instance, towards the end our character ends himself in a room that seems suspiciously similar to "The Black Lodge" from David Lynch's Twin Peaks. From there Lloyd Kaufman, whose performance seems to replicate a certain midget's from Twin Peaks, starts to attempt obscurity by way of French Dialouge. The film itself, plays like Eraserhead for kindergardeners. What is the worst, is that the cast itself isn't bad. The main actor Casey is quite good, as is Lloyd Kaufman. I don't know if I would say the same for the star of American Movie. In closing, a waste of a half an hour, or thirty minutes if you unfortunately get the longer version.
