Audience Reviews for This is Not a Movie

On the eve of the apocalypse a man checks into a Las Vegas hotel room where he converses with his alter egos, ghosts, and other mystical beings. It's hard to defend this movie against charges of pretension---the script seems like something a couple of sophomore English majors would come up with after a marathon session smoking some excellent sensi--but it is sincere, unpredictable, and there's not much else like it out there.

The name said it all. This is not your typical movie, its something a lot of inpatient people (like my girlfriend) easily walked away from. If you're a fan of Furlong, you'll be amazed, even with the low budget this film has, and the little push it has received so far, Furlong's multiple myself's insanity in this film is just pure GOLD. It is a "mega-trip" of a movie, something that would make stoner's go into a zombie epileptic buzz that will have you hypnotized. But for somebody straight, like me, I can see the depth in the story line, it maybe "a movie" but it's one hell of a twist of an ending that made me applaud to the writers of this film. Overall, Epic job on all who worked on this film, If you are up for a mad conspiracy type film that you can keep up to detail with, you'll love this movie like I done did giggity goo. Thank You!
