    One of the weirdest movies ever made impresses with its unique visual and sound effects, its ideas and scientific mumbo-jumbo. William Hurt is a revelation in the main role as the obsessed scientist and his descent into the primordial consciousness stays highly interesting despite the ridiculous developments. 10 years 9 months ago

    I love this movie, despite (or because of?) its insanity on so many levels. 13 years 4 months ago

    Nice piece of cinematography.
    Definitely weird, definitely outrageous, but has unique and binding atmosphere, and can make uncomfortable on any given level.
