One of the BEST movies ever! The twists and turns and even a \"prediction\" of what is in the design and ending makes it a movie I've watched several times and look forward to seeing it again. Each time I find something else that is clever as well as entertaining. Definitely NOT a comedy:)

As a movie "buff" and sometimes actor myself, I've seen a LOT of movies and can testify how hard it is to find a truly original plot....but this movie HAS ONE... a truly original plot with so many twists that even a jaded old movie fan can't guess what's going to happen next. I noticed that some of the critics called this a comedy .. and it is, indeed, very funny in places but be

An outstanding, hilarious romp. It makes your head hurt, but take an aspirin and relax, sit back and enjoy this nutty film. It is possibly the most amazing discussion of the nature of creativity ever attempted, and somehow it turns this abstract question into a romp. Michael Mendelsohn
