    Ultimately, Stone is a haunting film about what it feels like to be really and truly lost. show more

    I was with the movie until its head-scratcher of an ending, too oblique for its own good. show more

    One hour and forty someting minutes I will never get back. One of my top 10 worst movies I have had to ever endure. And in the top five most dissapointing considering the cast. Andbody that sees this movie as anything more than a total dissapointment needs to have a CT scan because they\'re way ovedue!

    Ultimate truth is in the background of all that transpires in this movie. Most reviewers seem to see only the surface meanings--the drama of life rather than the subtler esoteric meanings

    I am always amazed how people interpret movies (and books) that you MUST read between the lines. I saw a lot of \"hope\" in the film. A lesson was being taught- some won\'t be able to grasp. A good film should stick with you and provoke thought. Although not the \"best\" of these types of films it still had \"brass\".
