John Rotit is a happy, content man with a loving wife. Hours later, he's a rock star shooting up heroin. And after that...he's something far more sinister. John unwillingly flashes between three parallel lives in which he knowingly exists in each. He has no clue how or why this phenomenon is occurring, only that he wants it to stop. John's judgment becomes clouded as he'll do anything he can to end his flashes and remain in the one life where he's truly happy.Written by

The story is somewhat unusual, but it leaves more questions than it answers and therefore is often confusing. Some of that is the nature of bouncing around to three different realities, but actually the film did pretty well at making it clear which one you were in. I didn't understand the sequence leading up to the climax.
John Rotit was not the most likable character even in his best reality. In the second reality, Johnny was a selfish loser and in the third an almost robotic killer. I never understood why he was killing the people he did- what significance the people on the list were, but maybe I missed it.
John #1 has an unbelievably devoted wife. For one thing, she is drop-dead gorgeous, but in her character she is very forgiving. She confronts him about being gone so much, but then accepts his profession of fidelity. I have to admit, she was part of what kept me going to the end hoping that she would bring him around.
I thought the acting wasn't bad, but it also wasn't great. The psychiatrist didn't come off as authentic to me. I don't know what Christopher Judd was trying to be in reality #2. In reality #1 he seemed more like a middle-school teacher than a professor. Tom Sizemore looked like a lost puppy in #1 and #2 and a robot in #3. Maybe that was the intent.
