This is a brave movie. I am not a film critic but a neuroscientist who has focused on the connection between neuroscience and mental disorders for 20 years. Why is this important to state? Because I am afraid survival-enabling human consciousness has slammed head on with the 21th century's inhuman modes of existence, a reality for the vast majority of human beings. This film in its honest and painful manner holds no punches back and delivers its deep message on the ephemeral nature of existence. The looming ecological disaster is just a faint echo of the film's main message. The leading character's lack of a "transcendent" epiphany is NOT a drawback but a realistic acceptance of the pain of self-consciousness. Love of another, love of nature, love of knowledge is what this film is about, those who miss this clear message are already gone….
