If you are into weird movies (like me), you will probably dig this


OK so for convenience, I'll just break it down to the kind of people
who will like this movie, vs. those who won't. You pick your category
and then you will know if you should see it. Because 1 out of 20 people
will love this, and the rest will think it is the worst movie ever.

You will love it if: 1: You felt 2001 could have been even slower paced
and still be awesome 2: You love really thinky sci-fi even if it
doesn't involve people shooting aliens 3: You are crazy in love with
80's hair styles and weird synth music (this movie takes place in 1983,
and takes that responsibility VERY seriously) 4: You loved Agent
Smith's delivery of lines in The Matrix, and would have liked it if he
talked even more slowly and threateningly 5: You think the only good
sci-fi is 70's Russian sci-fi

You will hate this movie if: 1: You enjoy having more than one person
deliver lines over the course of two hours (basically one speaking part
in this movie, though the actor does a good job) 2: You don't like when
movies are very, very pretentious 3: You like your movies to generally
make an effort to make sense (at one point I swear the main guy gets a
phone call from Speak-n-Spell) 4: You don't like when movies spend a
considerable amount of their running time trying to injure the viewer's
senses 5: You like a really good ending (if you look over the reviews,
whether people loved or hated this movie everyone agrees the ending was

All things considered, I really liked this movie, and so did the people
I saw it with. But that's a bunch of film geeks. If you're a weird film
geek too, I recommend it.
