An absolute treat for the senses, albeit a rather bonkers and at times disturbing one. A modern masterpiece in film making.
Maybe it was a mistake to watch this when I was sleepy... but I have no idea what in the hell just happened. I know I wasn't dreaming, my dreams are more straightforward and logical.
I'll give it another try soon. In the meantime, I only recommend it if you are prepared to pay close attention.
Future, present and the past merged with technology merged with existentialism creates the institute.
