Twitter Capsule: Outright folly, stultifying in tone and style. Ambitious, yes, but hampered by odd devices, hoary clichés, erratic sentiment.

VOR:   For all its squandered opportunities and borrowed (elem)ents, this is a huge gamble, aesthetically and culturally. I can't recommend it, yet it's worth having an opinion. Effects geeks may spot new ones.
