| Intriguing
This movie is special.

It is a true in-depth study of the mind, and our individual perception's of reality. It can be confusing, and I will admit if there was not a Q&A with the director after the film ended (Toronto Film Festival) I would have given it an 8 or 9 (I failed to understand some of the symbolism). But after hearing his rationale and thought process, I am forced to give it a perfect rating.

The concept is truly intriguing and the story is ambiguous enough for individuals to draw their own conclusions.

If you are weary of common Hollywood fare, this is the perfect movie.
