Twitter Capsule: Felt like a proudly pop, invigorating energy shot on first pass. Less original and audacious on return trip; still, crafty fun.

VOR:   Y2K sibling to Run Lola Run as a gene-splicing of cinema and videogame forms. Strong trace elements, though, of high-school hangouts, stoner comedies.
