User Reviews

 
Story driven absract sci-fi.

This is not a typical movie so if you are looking for something different, try this. It is completely driven by the deep and complex story revealed in the narration. Very abstract visually.

Most people won't 'get' this movie - but if you want to go on a philosophical journey into the nature of consciousness, give this a go. I recommend a 420-friendly approach.

The view that said this 'has nothing to say' must have not been paying attention, because the story is vastly more complicated than any mainstream sci-fi movie.
