One of the best 'interconnected' storyline films ever.

Definitely an intelligent film. It's not for everybody, though. It's not the most entertaining movie I've ever seen. Eccentric, and at times… More

So much irony in a single movie, wow... A must-see. A powerful and poignant look about urban lives interconnecting.
