Don't be fooled; This is the only review you will need to read.
This is the only review you will need to read.
This "movie" was made to satisfy and stroke the egos of all involved in its making. There can be no other reason or excuse for this kaleidoscope of mismatched and incoherent ideas and random thoughts.
Any ratings above a 5 are surely posted by cast and crew or lonely, pretentious art-house students with nothing better to do after a hard day at school trying to decipher the collective works of David Lynch.
To be clear, this movie makes absolutely no sense and has you continuously asking yourself, what, when, where, who, but mostly, why. Be forewarned; there are absolutely no answers.
And to top it off, we are held hostage for almost two and a half excruciating hours, squirming uncomfortably as we continuously wrestle with thoughts of just cutting our losses and turning off our TV never to speak of this again.
With that said, if you still insist on watching, don't say I didn't warn you and, think of me when the credits are rolling.
