Carolyn to Clint: “Why aren’t you into it more? ‘Cause you’re not on your period and you’re not a chick?”
Carolyn liked it better than Next (2007) …. I definitely didn’t.
This is another Philip K. Dick-story-based movie, as we’ve been on a kick of watching those ever since a Slashdot article mentioned how much Hollywood loves making movies based on his stories.
This is best described as, perhaps, a supernatural romance. Fantasy genre — not sci-fi as it’s mis-categorized — with a bit of thriller action, but mostly romance driven.
Random IMDB comment: “It was a mind stimulating speculative film, a rather philosophical treatise on free-will versus determinism.” That may be going a bit far, but this does hint at various philosophical quandries, like that of The Matrix.
