I think the movie was going for some sort of “Sixth Sense” reveal, but ultimately tried to cram to much in to get a full effect. It tried something, but missed the mark by going in too many directions.
PTSD, biological warfare, paranoia, flashbacks, one family & a random girlfriend, a hospital torture scene, post office job, subway craziness, monsters, angelic chiropractor, and a dead child. That’s too many loose ends for one movie. It doesn’t pack a punch, send me into analysis, or make me think–it made me schizophrenic. Did the plots of 5 movies get jumbled together? Did the writer/direction have a plan for this?
I think the people that liked this were pretentious–and automatically assume SMART people get it. All I see is poor story telling, and nothing substantial to grab onto. Mulholland Drive–that is a puzzle that can be solved with attention to detail and some analysis. This one = fragmented garbage.
