SPOILERS COMING!!!!!!don't read if you intend seeing the movie and you should.

It has that effect on everybody!!! I thought I had finally got some kind of handle on it. Then I read a little about the director talking about parallel universes and also everybody interpreting in their own way. My understanding is that he travels through a wormhole in time to allow himself to be killed by the jet engine that missed killing him at the start. That way he changes some of the events that follow.

....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

Fuck that I like guns and explosions. Besides this movie is for those who wish to become mentally challenged because it was BULSHIIIIIIIIIT.

I downloaded it, so I could watch it again. I just did it once, though, and I think I got it.

Its not a movie you can explain very well, though. I mean, what would be the interest in contemplating a Kandinsky if he was to say exactly what was in his paintings?

A DISSIDENT IS HERE!

you think i got my eyes closed, but i've been lookin' at you the whole fuckin' time...

With a film like this isn't the whole point that you make your own interpretation and therefore nothing ix really wrong as long as you can back it up? At least that's what I think. I thought this movie was brilliant, best I've seen this year along with "The Ring."

yeah but nobody will explain it in their words? Is a movie really good when you can't even explain in your own words?
