    The Indie Gods smiled on this one. Too theoretical a premise to follow unconditionally, but a very interesting look at the interplay between demonstrative sexual urges and their actual subsidiary role in finding companionship.

Too theoretical a premise to follow unconditionally, but a very interesting look at the interplay between demonstrative sexual urges and their actual subsidiary role in finding companionship. The plot proceeds to demand a singular enlightened ending, and it delivers. The sharpest criticism came from those who failed to grasp that Thomas is not a third person character we can choose to reject or support. He is present in the first person, the viewer, he has no option but to apply his senses through his computer, and everything he says originates in the viewer's mind. As an outside character he is pathetic, but as you the viewer, and in a situation you wouldn't wish upon a dog, you will quickly bypass the need to judge, and you only hope you would be strong enough to be as even handed as Thomas is under the circumstances. You will never see Thomas's face in the movie. You need a mirror for that. Expand

    It's squeamish about sex but not, unfortunately, sentiment.
  2. The movie, after a while, drifts into an all too literal parable of the limits of never leaving the house.

    Its ambiguity allows us the chance to provide our own satirical edge to the film.
