With the initial imagery from the trailer, I was immediately in. It was like, "Boom, yes, who doesn't want another quirky, emotionally disturbing Charlie Kaufman-Spike Jonze-y kinda film starring Simon Pegg of Shaun of the Dead." And then I kept watching only to find myself audibly asking the computer screen, "Wait, what?"
I watched it twice, read a quick synopsis and even sent it to a friend whose response was "The writer/director's probably some British dude who's fragmented plot-line and/or 'humor' just doesn't translate." And while Crispian Mills, the writer and co-director, is in fact a Brit, maybe that has nothing to do with it, maybe his pseudo-intellectualism is just over my head.
Because let's be honest, what's up with the hedgehog?
So now I hope I don't regret asking you all this, but I turn it to you. Is it intentionally confusing, is it an over-the-pond I'm-an-American thing, or am I just in need of a serious schooling on metaphoric movie making?
