On the rocky path to sobriety after a life-changing accident, John Callahan discovers the healing power of art, willing his injured hands into drawing hilarious, often controversial cartoons, which bring him a new lease on life.
The enchanted lives of a couple in a secluded forest are brutally shattered by a nightmarish hippie cult and their demon-biker henchmen, propelling a man into a spiraling, surreal rampage of vengeance.
In an alternate version of Oakland, Cassius Green gets a telemarketing job and finds the commission paid job a dispiriting struggle as a black man selling to predominately white people over the phone. That changes when a veteran advises him to use his "white voice," and the attitude behind it to make himself more appealing to customers. With a bizarrely high-pitched accent, Cassius becomes a success even as his colleagues form a union to improve their miserable jobs. Regardless, Cassius finds himself promoted a "Power Caller" selling the most morally abhorrent but lucrative products and services as his connection to his girlfriend and colleagues fades away. However, Cassius' conscience arises anew as he finds himself in the midst of his boss' bizarre world of condescending bigoted decadence and his sinister plans to create the perfect subservient work force with Cassius' help.Written by

Director Michel Gondry is paid tribute in the director's name for the claymation sequence, Michel Dongy. Gondry's influence is clear in the scenes where the garage transforms into the luxury room. See more »
Near the end of the film, when Cassius gives his car to his co-worker, he is wearing dark blue pants with a pattern on them. But as he enters the garage with Detroit, he's wearing plain dark red pants. See more »
I'm not sure that I have seen the same movie as most of the people who rated this title.
The trailer for the movie was promising, but the movie was not interesting for me. As many wrote that is movie is not for everyone, it seems that I'm in that group. The first 20 minutes were OK, but after that period the movie was very boring for me.
I think that the main character just jumps into the next chapter in his carrier without any reason or without natural progression. The other characters don't have any depth.
Sorry, it was boring.
