The narrative is too inevitable and unrelenting to really entertain a viewer, but there is that image of the man and the woman, together, alone and adrift, which communicates a very powerful and even mythic portrait of the human experience

The main extras are two full-length audio commentaries, both of which are decently interesting and unpretentious.

Plays with viewer expectations in order to create a film that, for all it's simplicity, still manages to shock and surprise.
