Do not expect the film to make sense
15 August 1998 | by VarlaamSee all my reviews

The director, at the film's Toronto première, admitted that he did not resolve all of the loose ends, and that there were elements in the original screenplay which did not interest him very much, so he left them undeveloped. This is frustrating for viewers expecting an integrated whole. The story of the creation of this film reminded me of the genesis of David Lynch's Lost Highway. But just as that film was interesting, so is this one. If you are able to put the plot problems aside, the film has a distinctive style and is worth seeing for that reason alone. The film's title refers to a radio station frequency. It is also the number of the beast inverted. So said the director.
