Somehow, not withstanding its fragmented diversity of images, and despite the fact that it features very little dialogue . . . , it remains intelligible and remarkably coherent, even as the narrative lines expand, bend and contort to include sundry digressions. . . . The film, in essence, is a brilliant exercise in meta-narrative, which raises questions galore about reality and representation, time and space, genre and gender, individual and urban identity, cinematic suture and casting, etc.
