I rented this movie on iTunes awhile back (pre theatrical release,$10 rental). It was a BIT out there. I was disappointed with it. The trailer and the customer reviews looked and sounded promising. It was just too weird for me. I was nodding off

I was disappointed with it as well. It starts out fine, but just gets WAY too dark. I would have been better as a lighthearted comedy (which it seems to start out as)...by the end, I felt like I was watching an episode of THE PRISONER, but even more confusing.

I own the movie on Vudu. I think I watched it once. It was interesting enough, but that ending....

I generally like strange (Tideland, for example) films, but if it borders on the edge of esoteric like a lot of the Criterion stuff, it can be a little too strange. I'll have to think about this one.

I saw this at Sundance when it premiered. It certainly is weird. Some stuff I really liked, other stuff, especially the last 3rd, was just weird for weird's sake without having much real meaning. Overall, it was an interesting concept and a great example of guerrilla filmmaking, but not much more.
