The red VW Cabriolet seen near the end of the film has the California license plate 1E49950. This is a commercial plate and would not be on a regular passenger vehicle. Additionally, a commercial plate beginning with "1E" would be from the mid to late 1970's and would be on a blue plate, not a modern white plate. See more »
I have a lot of questions about all the things you just said.

One of the most insanely creative and original film ever. Its often strange with crude humour about farting corpses and boners, but there certainly is a deeper meaning to it rather than being crudeness for the sake of it.
This film is truly a magical experience that dares to defy conventions. Its a thought provoking film that would make you question our conventions and need to be normal while exploring loneliness. With beautiful cinematography, powerful performances by Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe, well paced with an excellent soundtrack this certainly is my favourite film of the year (so far).
Its certainly not everyone, it wouldn't be surprising if most people dismissed it saying 'What the hell'. Certainly recommended if you are into quirky, offbeat and creative films.
