The film was made in 2009 and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, however it feels much more dated than this, its not clear however if this is caused by a lack of funding or if it was done deliberately as a special effect. The film received a very mixed critical review, many critics disliked the film, calling it "unbearable" however others called it a "masterpiece".
So you might be asking yourself, why are you reviewing a film which isn’t a stoner film? Well the answer is simple, its just plain weird and is commonly referenced as the conceived idea of an acid trip. We felt the film therefore deserved a place within our collection. The film is constructed of several segments like the chapters of a book which adds to the suspense of the film, what do the title mean? do the title predict the characters fates? This really adds something to the film and continues the sense of mystery that surrounds it.
The film itself has very little plot that is visible and this likely will put a lot of people off, however once a greater understanding of the characters evolves, the plot becomes clear and carries messages of sacrifice, rage and destiny. The film is very primal in the sense that it has very little scripted dialog and instead uses long slow scenes and clever cinematography to portray the message of the film. Much of the film consists of the characters wandering around and focus’s much more on the psychological aspects of the characters. There is a lot of hidden meanings in the film and its probably speaks in different ways to different people.
