User Reviews

Works well on different levels
21 March 2017 | by Mike_OlsonSee all my reviews

Terrific magical film that works well on different levels. Surreal mystery. Post-apocalyptic science fiction. Compelling and weird character narrative. What has to be one of the strangest road/quest films ever. Some embedded humor as well.

Who needs a large budget when you have great cinematography, otherworldly sound effects, amazing locations, all brought together with inspired artistic vision.

I loved every strange crazy bit of it. Well worth seeking it out.
