This film's plot struck me as very unique and almost nightmarish. The atmosphere created by the editing and camera work really felt overpowering, as if I were watching a psychological thriller rather than a satirical drama. The structure of the choreography was something I've never seen in any other film, and the mysterious aura that is created around the Doctor played by Colm Feore really tingled my skin.

His charisma was evident from the beginning, but something about him from the split second he started talking told me he's up to something sinister. This movie honestly could've done a better job to make the end result more unpredictable, because I'll be damned if there's someone who couldn't figure it all out by the time it reached halfway. The ten patients had an interesting cast, but they had very little to work with as the repetition of their seemingly identical experiences only gave way to highlight their hollowness as characters in general.

The fact that it's set in Las Vegas seemed very out of place, due to the gambling and money scamming reputation known for the city. Of course, this might have been a dead giveaway that something was up. The fact that a movie reaching just under 2 hours would only be about whether conceiving a baby was medically possible seemed too simplistic, so I knew that there must be some villainous twist to its story.

Overall, it was a pretty bland film. Its theme had potential, but the way its been carried out did not seem to be that effective. The ending just made me think how childish and incompetent the Doctor was for all of this, considering it was the purpose for his profession. It had no deeper meaning to it, just the fact that things aren't always what they appear to be. The kind of plot that would work better as a short story rather than an actual 2 hour long film.
