wonderfully abstract, Paul Auster is amazing
This movie is really quite amazing. It is definitely not your typical hollywood storyline, so you have to be pretty open-minded. With this film, Auster was able to conjure up some very deep emotions, but it is very abstract. You might have to watch it twice to get more out of it. I have seen many parallels between this and his novels, so if you enjoyed this movie, try reading City of Glass.
