    This movie was bizarre. Reminded me of a low budget art school film. Made no sense whatsoever, honestly. The only thing that made it interesting was the fact that it starred Scarlett Johansson and her breasts.

    When film critics fall in love with a movie that defies explanation and they can't even explain it, ******** original, daring, mesmerizing, sublime, etc. This film, while having some cool imagery has a flimsy story. You want a movie to take you on a ride you haven't been, but not to nowhere

    An extraordinary and mesmerizing experience. Sit back and absorb it. Transcends the usual Hollywood trash...not even comparable. One of the finest films I have seen. Easily makes my all time top ten list. If you think "Transformers" are great sci-fi film making, don't bother.
