Trivia

The movie contains two references to Samuel Beckett's iconic play Waiting for Godot. First when Jessie quotes the line, "They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it's night once more." The second reference is when Miles and Flora refer to themselves as Vladimir and Estragon, and to their father as Godot. The familiarity that these young children display with Beckett's play, also serves as an additional clue that they, like Jessie, now exist only in Quint's mind. See more »

Not much happens.
24 March 2019 | by kengonzalez-89582See all my reviews

I must commend the filmmakers that they even managed to tackle such a sensitive subject but the issue of morality and the dilemmas it poses becomes central to the film- at the expense of the entertainment. The visuals are amazing including some stomach churning stuff involving operation room objects. Its all pretty much in one setting (the main character's science lab) but the inventive camerawork and editing are good enough to not let that matter. Interesting concept- flawed execution.
