| A just plain awful hipster transcendental attempt for cult status
I should know better by now that when producers do an existential movie, that it will be bad. But yep, here I go again watching it. I guess I'm looking for a life raft to save the sinking ship. It stars Zooey Deschanel,and Frank Langella, and a bunch of non-entities. I don't know what possessed Zooey and Frank to do this thing. Maybe they needed the work. They did make the most of a very bad situation, with great acting. I'm still wondering though, what the non-fleshed out Langella character was supposed to be. An angel? A later day biblical prophet? Good grief. The producers put in a basic plot, threw in some cryptic existential dialog and alternative music, then try for ending transcendence and what have you got?...Garbage. Whats even sadder, is that the slightly supernatural plot line isn't even original. Though I wish it was. That way, we'd have seen less of these kind of movies. l give it a 1 of 10. Some producers want to go for cult status and video sales, and all we get is a waste of time. How bout more story, and less otherworldly goofiness people? How this has got a 5.3 on IMDb so far, is beyond me. I'd like to rate it below the one I gave it.
