½

A bleak insight into the high-stress, low-self-control industry of the big global advertising rat-race, shown as driven by cocaine. The visuals are evocative and the segmented timelines tight, but I just could not agree with a lot of the stuff portrayed. As the movie is essentially a downer, about being too high. The last segment was an interesting plot twist-untwist though.

The story of a man who has everything but doesn't want it, who falls in love but doesn't realize it it until it's gone and who doesn't understand happiness until it's too late. The story has been told before but not in this way. Filming the whole thing as a commercial is just genius.

The most visually stunning movie I've seen. I had to watch it twice because I couldn't pay attention to the subtitles the first time. I was too busy admiring how it was shot.
