I wanted so much to like this movie more. Becuase it looks absolutely fucking fantastic. Every still is a postcard — but the film isn’t even MADE of stills! The sweeping lateral tracking shots are gorgeous. No other word. The story, however, is based on a J. L. Borges short story and it shows. It’s kinda devicey and hard to grasp. Ann and I turned to one another at the end and uttered, simultaneously, “Twilight Zone episode.” And that’s really what this is. The most beautiful and elegant Twilight Zone episode ever shot.
