    A maddening, infuriating, incredible experience. With a slow start, it gradually builds to surrealistic nightmare that is almost comical in its absurdity, only to constantly pull you back into its frightening reality. A part of me thinks that Bunuel would have loved this. I had no idea what to expect going in, and I would recommend everyone else do the same.
