Ivul Gurk: Well, well, we could, ah, talk forever - is there a solution?
Tomas Katz: Yes! I have it here. It's a tuning fork. I acquired it through the Sunday Times recent innovation feature.

Big cabbage of a movie
5 October 2003 | by critiquerSee all my reviews

As the movie started, I have expected somehow good picture, an intriguing mix of art and expressionism. And I've got all of that, but in the very bad way. The movie starts very promising (accelerated crowd in London with techno soundtrack + first blust of Tomas) but that's where ends everything nice and reign of absurd starts. And it made me starting to hate the movie, and left me confused and angry. I'm not a huge fan of art movies but I could watch anything while it has a logical story to follow. And, the most important, while it is tasteful. This movie isn't! It has a short story of the end of the world with many unconnected and unnecessary scenes which spoil the whole movie. I am a huge fan of Monty Pyton. It isn't very logical but it is very tasteful. This movie is mainly a BAD TASTE.
