It's close to what Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez were after with their Grind House double-header, but shot through with Snyder's own psychotropic brio (which is something like the unholy union of David Lynch, Brian De Palma, and Ken Russell).
It will be played as a double feature with Richard Kelly's Southland Tales for years to come, with audience members chirpily reciting the campy, cheesy, oddball lines of dialogue, and whooping in glee at its reckless abandon.
There is so much front to this that traditional depths of character development and motivation are sidelined, but this is intentional, allowing the audience to immerse in the layers of dreams and later piece together what actually happened.
