review by
Mike Haberfelner

Elliot (Joshua Coffy) wastes his life away being a maintenance worker in an obscure company where he works lonely shifts under the watchful eye of "the Face" (Robert Pristine Condition Gammel), who controls his every move and only communicates with him via monitors that are seemingly everywhere. In his off-time, Elliot slips away into some sort of paradise where he's an idealized version of himself, where a butler (Jay Sosnicki) never tires fixing him food and more food, and where Elliot even finds love - and all of this makes Elliot long for this parallel world more and more. But then something happens in the "real" world that Elliot fails to understand but that has him on the run, and the fine line between reality and paradise starts to blur - but that's not necessarily a good thing ...


Truth to be told, above is more an interpretation of Elliot than an actual synopsis as the film is a highly abstract game with science fiction mainstays, set in a bizarre world that comes with its own colour scheme and wonderful lo-fi diy backdrops, outfits and facial masks. This all makes the movie a feast for the eyes at least, and something that makes one think pretty much by definition. But then again, the movie does fall short several feet from being a masterpiece, as it's rather lazily structured and carelessly paced, to a point where pointless scenes are panned out way too long while more interesting aspects are downplayed. That said, it's still a fascinating movie - but one that hasn't realized its full potential.
