Goofs:

Audio/visual unsynchronized:
The answering machine in Henry's apartment has "Digital Answering Machine" printed on it yet when the new message is played it sounds like a cassette tape rewinding before the message is actually played. Digital answering machines do not have tapes to rewind so there should be no taped rewinding sound.

Quotes:

Henry Letham:
An elegant suicide is the ultimate work of art.



User Review

A brilliant film about a young man near death

Rating: 9/10

It's hard to comment on this film without including a spoiler, but I
feel it is necessary to try because of all of the unwarranted bad
reviews this film is receiving. If you go into it expecting to see a
rendition of The 6th Sense, you might be disappointed. If you go into
it expecting to see a logical plot with a chronological story behind it
and an honest portrayal of developed characters, you will be
disappointed and very confused.

However, if you go see this film with an open mind and simply
EXPERIENCE what it has to offer, you will be rewarded greatly at the
end – assuming, of course, that you understand what you have just seen,
at least to some degree. For the best experience, pay attention to the
little details, but don't try to figure anything out until the end. See
it with someone so that you can discuss it afterward. It's that good.

This movie is visually appealing and artistically constructed –
pleasing to both the eye AND to the mind.
