Bryan Lienesch31 - We've seen this sort of "questioning reality" type of film time and time again. When it works, it's very, very good. But when it's not, as it is here, it feels like it throws as much cow excrement at you as possible to throw you off the fact that they (the writers, directors, and, well, the cast and crew in general) don't actually know where they are going with this.
