I don't know what to say about it. It was certainly surreal, and though not as good as 'The imaginarium of doctor Parnassus's which was another surreal movie that could have easily have been made by the same people, It was still wonderfully done and lives on to be one of my favourites.

Atmosphere. Characters. The world this film lives in... Absolute perfection. Simply put, movies do not get better than this.
