| Nice Nothingness
Lots of film time spent silently watching a lorry truck driver traverse the flat desolate Northeastern Tibetan plateau; three miles high (15,000 feet). Driver sings to an Italian operatic cassette tape, and pees. Nothing but barren flatness for dozens of miles yet somehow he doesn't see and runs over a lone sheep - huh? Then, middle of nowhere, picks up a person walking along the highway. This person is going to a town to kill the man who killed his dad ten years earlier. Some reviewers mention parallel Universes, but I see no justification for it. Karma is a possibility as killing a sheep is bad. Ending not clear as to whether someone was killed, but, if so, by whom (the driver or the revengeful walker). Or, the killing is just a dream. Or, karma's circle of life is at play we see the driver as the killer enacting the next level. More clarity would have been nice. Note: Adding to the karma possibility we see the same background scene for both men of what looks like the game, Sho. Lots of stray dogs in scenes adds authenticity.
