I'm sure I'm in the minority on this, but I found this film to be a dreadful mess. I think Roger Ebert had this film pegged right (although his review is not nearly as harsh as it should have been).

Hey, it's all opinion, man. I personally think a lot of this film. A good commentary on industry, government and technology.

This is one strange,weird film. My first time watching it, i wasn't the biggest fan of it. I thought it was messy,convoluted, and way too oddball. But then after some thought it begins to sink in. That's the point. I recommend this film if your looking for a great satire.Delightfully unique film.

While the start is a bit slow, this emerges as one of the best, most imaginative, most captivating, most mindbending movies I have ever experienced.

I love the set design and some of the performances are really good, but I just couldn't ever fully get into the film.

It's friggin' 142 minutes long. Not only 94 minutes, as it says in here.

a charming black comedy with flawless acting. If a CEO of some big 80s company had a trippy dream that could win academy awards this would be it.
