Watching this movie was a religious experience.

This is what the "heck" (not the word i want to use but you know what i mean) kind of movies. I was 8 minutes in i just wanted to turn it off. It took me two days to finish because i couldn't sit and watch all of it at once. Some of it wasn't what i expected and i was confused most of the time. in other words this is a movie that doesn't make since at all and i don't know how in the world it made it through production.

Sometimes absurd and sometimes deeply philosophical, Daniel Radcliffe delivers a completely un-Harry-Potter-like performance. This is a very odd movie that is definitely not for everyone, but is 100% original from beginning to end.

Radcliffe is amazing as a corpse, brought back to life by the imagination of Paul Dano, a ship-wrecked man who finds Radcliffe washed up on the beach of his tiny desert island. Radcliffe returns the favor by enabling Dano to leave the island and return home. The police arrive and put Radcliffe into a body bag, which I thought was the right place to end the movie. However, the director preferred to have Dano hi-jack the body and take it down to the beach, where the characters have a sentimental discussion of how people would all be better off if they didn't feel they had to hide stuff from each other. Despite the hokey ending, I give it four stars.

I really found the movie fun but its clearly something that is not for everyone. If you dont like a darker humor or guys talking about masturbating , steer well clear. The movie crazy and not really good at keeping your sensations of disbelief away. Also the ending choices felt like it was going to be good then they sort of spoiled it a bit. That said the movie has its weird emotional moments. So if you can look past its flaws you will fine some nice gems, but if you cant your going to be in for a bad time.

The very last line of the movie is WTF?, and that pretty much sums up this movie. Can't say I didn't watch the whole thing though, but not unlike looking at an atrocious accident on the road as you drive by. Definite points for originality.

A gimmick and some humorous movie. It is somewhat entertaining and watchable.

Oh dear. This was absolutely unequivocally terrible.

My husband hated it; I loved it. Quirky black comedy about a man stranded so long he becomes suicidal, who then tries to convince a nearly-dead man that there are reasons for living. Unfortunately the writers are more imaginative than intelligent, but the movie is fun and charming if you can ignore the gaps in rationale.

Awful! total rubbish. I couldn't get past the first 30 mins.

Well, I'll give it this much: It's original if nothing else.
The performances and cinematography are both really good, with enough WTF moments to rattle even the most jaded viewer.
Plus: The ending is well worth the time getting there.

Sexual Content: Very frank talk about self-pleasure, and a plot point involves male arousal
