    I feel like I’ve known this movie for years.

    It’s immersive, and a 70s hangout movie that slips easily into the Boogie Nights, Almost Famous, and Dazed & Confused category, it feels like i must have seen it. Yet it’s characters feel fresh and fascinating. I could watch this 10 times and still discover things about Alana and Gary.

    Wow, what a dark and fascinating look at the human mind and what makes us alive. It shows that what makes us alive is our sub conscious. It’s so tremendously sad to think about the people out there who are stuck in their own minds.

    De Niro brings life to a near lifeless man. Robin Williams brings heart to a somewhat stiff doctor in one of his least goofy performances. It’s pretty intense throughout and told with true care for all those involved.
