Everything and everyone in this movie is dumb and the movie itself makes little sense. With that said, it's largely inoffensive viewing in that nothing's lost if you do watch it.

A masterpiece, both in style, mood, atmosphere, and subtle substance, just like its predecessor 'Alien.' A marvel in directing, acting, design, soundtrack, and attention to detail.

I'd like to give a higher rating but I really had to force myself through it. The last few minutes almost redeem most of it, and are worth viewing. It reminds me of films like 'Somewhere' and 'Life in a Day' for its potential, that to me feels unrealized due to the emphasis on the crushing monotony.

Though the art is interesting and the unique viewpoint of the director is singular here, other films have accomplished much more on these themes. See 'Ikiru.' [This review is for the hour-long film].
