Some nice scenery, but ultimately boring.

Considering that the movie is obviously aimed at children, this 50-year old found it very entertaining. I'm glad there were only 2 of the songs from the original Disney animation in it, but the homages paid to them in the score are inspired. Being a kid's movie, the plot is a little simple, and it's easy to see where it's going most of the time. However, there's some great action scenes, and of course an underlying message or two.

I didn't understand a word of this, yet I was captivated by the cinematography and surreal characters that inhabited the building where every scene takes place. After watching I was read a synopsis of the plot, but I don't really think it's that important. Turn on, tune in, freak out!

This movie brought to mind the unravelling of Michael Douglas's character in Falling Down, but at a slower rate and in very different circumstances. Here, Mitchell (played by Jake Gyllenhaal) has a breakdown caused by the sudden death of his wife in a car accident. He becomes detached from the realities of his job, much to the chagrin of his boss, who was also his father-in-law. A strange relationship with a vending company customer service rep begins, with Mitchell taking on a father-role for her son, who has problems of his own. The narrative is interspersed with flashbacks to his previous life (but these are not as effective as director Jean-Marc Vallée had probably hoped.) Nevertheless, this was an entertaining yet thought-provoking movie.
