Slick, innovative, surrealist whit and soul.
24 October 2002 | by ETCmodel02See all my reviews

Brilliant in every respect, slick sense of humor ALA RoboCop meets Delicatessen and LEXX with a dash of Accion Mutante and a couple of nice nods to the sets of Blade Runner. I loved this. Laughed, cried, laughed again. Excellent! On the technical tip, great Production Design throughout, and very snappy editing and sound design. A total winner!
