| You need to understand it first and then to appreciate it
When you first watch it and if you don't watch it carefully enough, it may make no sense to you and it may seem a chaos. But actually, it's not a ghost movie and it really has something that's not just skin- deep. It makes much more sense to me after I watch it twice. The actor, Aloys/Kun Chen, did a great job. The director made a good use of Montage. The so-called ghost scenes are actually in the main character's dreams. It more of a thriller than a ghost story. It is not a ghost story if you read the novel which the movie is based on. The guy is a writer who used to be a normal guy but finally turned to have paranoia and some other mental illnesses. The movie shows you an extreme example(which does not often happen in real life but has the potential to happen) of young people in big cities in China nowadays who are facing increasing societal pressures from work, from peers, and etc. The movie makers actually want to warn people to pay attention to not just their physical health but also their mental health. What the movie shows you is an idea and you can't take everything in the movie as it really happened to the character, because he was dreaming, and all that were mental pictures. Pay attention to some details and you'll get more than you can imagine. It may seem to you orderless at first, but do remember that the guy has mental illnesses.
