Some things should not be looked into. Or after for that matter. Some other things have so many different things going on, that even looking into them might confuse one more rather than explain things. This movie is one of those cases. It is quite weird to say the least and it has a lot of elements that might not work for a lot of people.

Then again this was not made for casual consumption. And as other directors state (on the special features), there are things Roeg does that are considered cinematic mistakes (zooms to name one). But they add to the flair and some even recognize his style over others just for that fact. So what works for some, will not work for others, which is not really a big philosophical discovery. You should get a sense of what the movie tries to do.

Either the trailer or maybe even the "intro" to the movie should suffice for that. The intro is quite obvious while rather silent. Most viewers should understand what is about to happen. Can you exactly explain why you can? Colors, composition, editing and more things add to that. Expectation surely does too. And yet it still should leave a mark to say the least.

While there are places where one might argue the film visibly has aged, there are many that transcend time. The love scene/montage (including nudity) being one of them. Weird to explain or to describe, this coninues to set the tone, but also keep the tone from what we had from the start. A difficult movie to watch for various reasons, but one that you will either cherish or be annoyd by for sure
