Holy shit. How do you turn a crazy idea into an awful movie with a cast you hope will kill themselves in the first five minutes. If you've been waiting for just the right moment to hate Kirsten Dunst, here's your chance. She plays an absolutely dreadful bitch in every way. Also, the intro to the movie is a 6-7 minute collection of slow motion abstract scenes with a nearly deafening score blasted in time. I was afraid the entire film was going to be like this. I am not quite sure if this movie is trying desperately hard to be artsy or if it generally is. It feels desperate and bleak throughout though.

Anyway, if you want to watch a good science fiction film, skip this piece of shit. If you're a dipshit who writes poems with a rose stem dipped in ink, you might think this is art. I hope someone else watches it though just so I can see what they think.
