Trivia

The nuclear bomb scene was filmed in the basement where 'Fight Club' was filmed. The bomb could not be carried down to the basement, so the crew filmed the bomb sequence at the sound stage. See more »

Do not read if your IQ's below 200
7 October 2008 | by mues-leeSee all my reviews

While I am neither an expert of movie mechanics nor of the so-called art of acting, there are a few points worth sharing to this piece of work:

  • This movie may be viewed as dumbed-down pseudo-dramatic - or as brilliantly mocking the 'intense thrillers' of our dear Hollywood time and age. - The questions the movie concerns itself may appear to be a bit huge to fit into our daily lives, and the answers may seem to be the most radical ones (or the most normal, depending on your point of view and degree of thinking). There is, however, no doubt that a thinking mind must come across both question and answer as portrayed here. - This movie will hurt, if you choose to see it with open eyes. Since most people prefer feeling decently dazed to seeing the truth, this will not be a popular movie. - Hopefully, I am wrong about the previous point. I would justify my hopes for us as a human race.


Oh, and - you really don't have to be a genius to get this movie: Think for yourself. Few messages in this world are as beautiful as this.
