I really liked the cinematography of this movie. Many shots have a beautiful colour palette. Also the audio is very good, very nice sound design. The soundtrack is a good mix between 80s synths and psychedelic sounds. But I did find the story to be confusing and not clear what makes it difficult to gain empathy for the characters. Also notice that some songs/tracks are used more then two times what causes the song to lose its effect.

A really good and rather psychedelic movie.

To say this favored style over substance would be an understatement. The audio and visual style was fantastic... I think I'd have enjoyed this more packaged as a screen saver with the few story elements that are there removed.
