There is literally a 30+ minute YouTube video explaining this movie. The fact that this exists, proves that this movie fails. Tried too hard in my opinion.
A very strange film. I had no idea what might be going on by the end though, and reading explanations online honestly didn't shine too much more light on the allegories at play. I feel a bit unsatisfied with the end, although I really tried to enjoy it. However, I wouldn't mind reading the book it was based on at some point.
More please. Thank you.
