Interesting concept, but not interesting enough for a full-length movie
From director Gyorgy Palfi ("Taxidermia"), this is a weird concept: An entire movie made by editing hundreds of movies from all times and all genres, from early silents to the latest sci-fi's (and including his own "Texidermia" at one point). All of them are spliced to tell a story.
For a film buff like myself, it's hard not to keep busy recognizing the movies all the time (I think I recognize at least 50% of them). Also, at times it feels as if, when the director wants to show a scene, he takes all the relevant scenes from previous movies and splice them together without really needing to do that (like the "supercut" clips on YouTube).
The concept is pretty interesting, half-original half-not ("Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982)", for example). It's good for a short movie, not for a full-length film. At times it feels like a clip from the Oscars, but an endless one.
According to IMDb's trivia, the movie uses scenes from 450 different movies and TV series. I think there are a lot more. While the movie was playing, I found it more interesting to recognize the films and add the missing ones to IMDb's Movie Connections. I added more than 30 of them.
At the end, in the "special thanks" credits, they are listing IMDb.com and... isohunt.com
