Gerald McMorrow:
At the same time, this is not V for Vendetta and it's not The Matrix and it's not Watchmen, though the Meanwhile City angle has been played up in advertising for the film, understandably. I don't believe it's science fiction and it's not a superhero movie. It's for rather lost and fractured people who have slipped out of reality and try to find themselves. And, you know, there's a little bit of gallows humour in the film regarding religion, but at the same time there is this rather lovely other force helping these people along. They're all, weirdly, in good hands and, I think, end up where they should be.
