It is this aspect of the film which has drawn most criticim bringing with it accusations of misogyny.
Watch it with the subtitles off and you'll think it doesn't make sense; watch it with the subtitles on and you'll realize it's not supposed to make sense.
The jokes do come very fast and there are some decidely surreal sequences, some very stylish editing, and the occasional interupting fantasy.
It can only be seen on a computer with an adequate SW installed. Does not show on my DVD reader.
High cost of shipping
