Intense surreal film. Would make a nice triple feature with Let's Scare Jessica to Death and Repulsion.
Really fascinating! A week in the life with mental illness. Even self-awareness doesn't cure it.
This movie had plenty of moments that made you blink and ak yourself if you saw that correctly. Even a slight rewind was done multiple times when I watched this. Watch the movie, give it a few months, and rewatch to see what you probably missed the first time.
Really cool and haunted movie. One of the best of it's kind. Give it a look if you are in a 70s art film mood. R.I.P. Rene Auberjonois.
Honestly it was SO good. I've never been a fan of Altman in particular, and I wasn't familiar with this one. Everything ties together really well, down to actors names being flipped with the characters. The "puzzle", the voice over narrator of the children's book. Even the signs at the train station. It is terrifying to know that many people live this way, their imagination woven into their reality.
