Great hypnotic images and sad themes. It's creepy but not really scary. I admit it will be too weird and pathetic for most people but if you like weak, pathetic characters like I do, you will love it.
I almost turned it, but was really drawn in after the first 30 minutes. The contrast between actual human contact and being consumed by a game are great... and the imagery is compelling.
Loved it , new one for me thx
I really enjoyed this movie. It seems to be taking inspirations from films like Beyond the Black Rainbow, Naked Lunch, Videodrome, Into the Void, etc... I thought the visual storytelling was very well done, the effects are mostly practical so that's a big plus for me! Also, the subplot fit right in with the flow of the whole story. Overall this movie wasn't trying to be anything, it was doing something of its own, and I can appreciate that. It was very enjoyable and I would recommend it if you just want a good story and interesting visuals. It's not going to be the best film you've ever seen, but it's certainly not bad by any means, just really good, you won't regret it.
This should have been condensed to a short film. Too much fluff, not enough peanut butter. The 80's bits were the highlight even though they were very scarce.
