  • I rented this a while back and made a few comments of my own.

    You can read them here [perl.org] if you like.

    You were clearly more patient with this movie than I was.

    • Yeah, I guess you could say I was patient. Thing is, I kept watching hoping for clues that would help make it all make sense. Well, some people appear to have figured out a fair bit of it, but I was not able to on my own. Heck, I didn't even figure out that the first part was just imaginary.

      Now I'm left with this disturbing sensation of incompleteness (i.e. lack of "closure")... perhaps even incompletability. That's the only reason I want to know "what's going on", just to ease that unease.

      All in all, I thought the movie was very cool, very stylish, and visually very intriguing.

      But the second part, being so very different in tone, was very depressing. Throughout the first part, I was able to be optimistic that things were going to "work out okay" and our protagonist would be happy in the end. In the second part we're told in no uncertain terms that the play is a tragedy, and no happiness will obtain for anyone.
