Loopy, Beautifully Made Neo-Noir that is Incomprehensibly Interesting
Ultimately Watchable with some Stunning Dark Cinematography, Color, and Expressionistic Elements. The Look of the Thing is the Thing here and if You are Compelled by Non-Linear Story Formats, and Dreamlike Presentations, this Movie is a Must.
But be Advised it is a Dense Screenplay with not a lot that is Easy Going Intellectually. It's Neo-Noir Niche is Derivative of David Lynch and the Coen Brothers. The Acting is Surprisingly Well Done and the Movie is a Fascinating Alternate-Universe with Perplexing Turns and Supernatural Elements.
For a Low-Budget Indie this is an Excellent Effort and the Film is Beautifully Framed with some Interesting Camera Angles and the Dialog is Spiffy, Although Most of the Movie is Mentally Challenging in a Good-Bad Way. But it is Interesting All the Way.
