When I was a child, my mother said to me, "If you become a soldier, you will become a general. If you become a monk, then you will end up as Pope." Instead, I became a painter, and wound up as Picasso.
Synopsis: Aaron and Abe are out to create something amazing. But they end up with something even amazinger.
Reaction: Not for everyone. This is a thinking movie. And that is the simplest way to describe it. It took me three watchings to even begin to fully understand certain aspects of the movie. And I'm still not certain I understand it all.
Personal Rating: 9/10
Highlights "Are you hungry? I haven't eaten since later this afternoon."
The budget for the entire film was around $7000. Most of the money was spent on film stock.
Shane Carruth stated that at most an 80 minute could be made from the footage (the film was 78 minutes). He stated that the shooting ratio was 2:1.
In the scene in which Abe-2 knocks out Abe-1 with nitrous oxide, the container he's holding is actually a rice cooker. Also, we see sleeping Abe's profile, but not standing Abe, because the latter was [?] David Sullivan standing in for Shane Carruth.
There was a scene later cut out portraying Aaron as a diabetic. The shot showed him giving himself an insulin injection.
