Complete garbage
17 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Seriously, what was this complete garbage??? Can it even qualify as a movie? I love movies and I have seen many movie in my life from many countries, and this has by far been one of the worst movies I ever have seen.

I guess it's supposed to be artsy ...or whatever, but I can't help but feel that the ones behind this movie had to be on drugs or something when working on it. The movie makes absolutely no sense. Watching this movie is a complete waist of a time.

The movie is random and goes back and forth between strange clips and scenes, and has various narrators talking nonsense.
