Seen: October 21, 2006 on TMN

Reason to see: Recommended by Jamie

A duo of existential investigators. That's right - existential investigators. What a bizarre premise! Bizarre yet, amazing. I had no idea what to expect and whatever I could have expected it was something completely different. Quite and impressive cast, and a creative use of language. Great film, watch it to just go along for the ride.

Favourite Quote:
"Don't use that tone with me."
"I think you started that tone."

Shannon's Overall View:
I loved it
I'd watch it again
I'd recommend it, but be prepared to be outside of the box

I had a hard time with this one, but my BF Mike LOVES it. He was totally into the "existential investigator" idea!
