Based on a story so unusual that, in a sense, it invents its own reality, this movie is definitely worth checking out. The problem in recommending it is that people used to big budgets and standard storytelling may be disappointed.

Some would definitely find it odd.

It basically takes a reality -- a drug robbery that goes wrong; or about which, it remains to be seen whether things *will* go wrong -- and adds to it a story element that may seem superfluous but which is certainly creative: the existence of aliens known as "sufferers" which trail those in trouble, and whose symbolic significance is definitely up for grabs.

The characters in the story speak as if the sufferers are commonplace in their world -- which, in most ways, is actually our own world. There is, too, something very emotionally interesting about the concept.

The story itself, however, tended for me to play out without much emotional impact -- but it definitely kept me until the end. I was curious about this highly unusual-sounding tale, and my curiosity was satisfied.

I loved this film. It is fairly low budget, so bare that in mind. Then allow this authentic movie to work its magic. Dano is, as always, riveting.
It took very little time for me to believe what was going on. Once I was there, I was there.

I really do not know how to describe this movie other than it is quite unusual and different from what you usually see in a lower budget film. Paul Dano is excellent as always...this movie seemed somewhat abstract to me yet it had me watching and wanting more when it ended. I am glad I purchased it and would recommend it.
