Very Odd movie. Richard Linklater, so that partially explains it, but it's done much the same way that the upcoming A Scanner Darkly is with the filmed in Live Action and then animated. But this one is all about a boy/teenager who is constantly dreaimng about having these philosophical conversations with people. THere are conversations about life and dreams and all sorts of stuff. A lot of it went over my head, and then a lot of it that I understood (or thought I did at the time) made me feel waaay smarter than I am. It's a movie to watch if you're into philosophy and existentialism, or if you want to learn in a more creative format. It doens't explain things to you, just tells you about them.
It's a movie you can walk away from either feeling a whole lot smarter, or a whole lot stupider.
