since you're one of the few, if any, who've seen this film here, please do me the great honor of explaining further as to why you feel the way you do.

it doesn't hurt that 'to the end' was shot in the same style... :wink:

perhaps this was the wrong forum to post about a movie that's actually... allegedly respectable.

and i no longer can post at the other place for whatever reason. can't sign in.

no msn either.

it's all falling apart!!!!

Sorry I don't really come into this forum all that much.

I love the film simply because it's quite enigmatic. Scenes repeat, the camera goes here and there, the characters don't have names, it's like watching a memory. It's not dissimilar, I guess, to The Glass Menagerie, although you might argue there's a lot more emotion in that particular play than in this film. But I think the pseudo-expressionistic techniques applied actually allows for a greater emotional experience, as if you were part of the man's memories.

It's a film that I hated and found unwatchable the first time I saw it, but the second time I was transfixed.

Zoomerang96 11-26-2006 02:16 PM

yes sir... definitely part of it.

the whole thing is quite unsettling
