Some of those who wander ARE lost.
Low user ratings are to be expected when the names of Keanu and Bojana
fuel edge-of-your-seat anticipation. This however documents (partly
videotaped by Keanu's character) a 24 hour stretch in the lives of
three people who are beyond clueless, they don't even care if there is
such a thing as clue, purpose or direction in life. They don't even
bother to define the relationships amongst the 3 of them. They don't
even care to find words to describe their feelings and their lack of
any accomplishment gives new meaning to the word void. I do believe
this to be a socially relevant document of the lives of some of the 20-
or 30-something generation who are one level below the entitled ones.
It's there, it's real, no comedy nor drama, but it did powerfully
communicate awareness to me as a viewer.
