What this film lacks in photographic finesse it makes up for in conceptual cleverness. Throughout, I felt the film could have benefited from a more sensually charged visual approach, but I had fun anyway. It's funny, something I wasn't expecting it to be, and you can't get bored watching Tilda Swinton. It was amazing to see her craft such distinct personalities for the four roles she portrays. The script does her justice too despite the films somewhat unfortunate lack of symbolic eroticism. Would totally watch again though. Like I said, it's fun.

pretty, but disconnected narrative

Superb, but in a way which made its watching even more enjoyable. The crossovers between "Reality" and A Bio-Engineered "New Reality" make for an ever-expanding scope of quirky sometimes hilarious events.

not really perfect but totally cool +Tilda x 4 is wonderful in all_so bright & charged a total delight _so much fun

Flat and simplistic.

Strange subject, pretty much a one actor piece. Odd, is the word.

cliches given at the end are disappointing, summing it up so succintly. many questions unanswered. but an entertaining film, with adorable love sequence with an appealing male character.
