a film that is seemingly "aware" of its ephemeral nature as a piece of fiction, but that deals with touchstones such as infidelity, mortality, purpose, religion, madness, paranoia, mundanity, identity, family in a hugely silly offhand knockabout way that somehow doesn't rob the subjects at hand of their due gravitas.
the plot isn't linear (but it does have many amusing intricacies), the editing, performances and cinematography are playful, without being smug. not at all an impenetrable film as some would have you believe, and despite its jokey and sometimes sarcastic tone, it is not a film without heart or soul - i find it quite poignant, as it happens.
it looks good (to the eyes - visually impressive) - the soundtrack is a hoot.
apparently they haven't pressed any in a while. stupid move. excellent film.
