As if a screenwriter worked backward from a fully-formed story, then parceled pieces of it to create viewer intrigue along the way. Unfortunately, doing that requires more exposition than was included in the film.
More shoe-gazing, incomprehensible emo crap posing as "thoughtful indie commentary on being and belonging". I'm all for the format and there are some great examples of it out there, and thanks to some great indie streaming sites on the web a lot more of it gets to be seen.Unfortunately this one doesn't make the grade. It is very well cast and the actors turn in believable performances, there just isn't enough substance for them to work with. Even the FX would have been forgivable, if only the story had been stronger
What you'll take home from it: -If you've ever had intestinal worms, you probably also had an alien's spawn. -Extraterrestrials are tourists with an exquisite appetite for human cuisine. -Everyone's family tree/genealogy should be reevaluated by an exterminator. -If you have bad bouts of acne, you should find others like you to find out what planet you are really from.
