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.
I love this movie, despite (or because of?) its insanity on so many levels.
Mindrape at it's finest. Exquisite visuals, droning images and the search for a crack among nothingness. Daring cinema, loved it.
