Strange movie
19 July 2006 | by janelikesjoeSee all my reviews

I really liked this movie. it was surreal and strange (in a good way). My first impression when it was over was: "That was a weird movie." I like how it doesn't make even the tiniest attempt to explain anything or to make a conclusion or moral. It just shows this random story and lets it be. I don't think I really understand this movie. But to me, it is not about necessarily understanding it. What I took away from it was that one can't really understand it because it didn't create a story with a beginning, middle, and end. I mean, it did, but not in the literary "story" sense. It was more in a human story sense. And as hard as we try, we can never ever fully understand life and humanity. What this movie gives us, I think, is the chance to think, to wonder, to ponder, to mule over, to philosophize, to contemplate, to accept, but not to understand, analyze, conclude, and wrap up in a neat little package. This movie is based on a novel, which I haven't read. My dad said this movie was very literary. I don't know if he's read the novel or not, so I can't make a comment on that. But I do agree that the movie is very literary. I'm sure the novel allows the reader to be more conclusive. But to me the movie wanted to viewer to just experience it and let it be. Another reason I like this movie is that I feel it can be analyzed right and left and no one interpretation is right or wrong, because this movie doesn't have a moral.
