Loved the doors and the hats. Classic example of what Tim Peter's gorgeous infographic calls "conspiracy gothic":
"The hero, who suffers from loneliness and malaise, notices an uncanny rip in the fabric of his reality. He investigates the rip and suspects that his world is an artificial construction and that he is trapped and/or a prisoner. He is pursued by antagonistic agents. A female love interest passes through the hero’s prison-world. She is from the real world and wants to help free him, but she too is resisted by the agents. The hero tries to reach the woman and her real world, but is repelled by the agents and by the barriers of his prison. He suffers a crisis. The hero has to rouse himself to try once again to escape. The hero breaks free from his prison, reaches the woman he loves, and begins fighting against the forces that had oppressed him."
But ultimately, it's a love story, and I didn't care enough about their relationship to really care if they wound up together. Better in concept than execution.
