Plot in few words: Despite being under heavy sedation, a young woman tries to make her way out of the Arboria Institute, a secluded, quasifuturistic commune. Reasons 2 Watch: - Dazzling visuals - Futuristic locations and shots - Neon lights! - Deep, resonating audio - Surrealistic and totally unusual atmosphere VD Choice: The best option for you is to let yourself be totally absorbed by hypnotic atmosphere and soundtracks of this 80's/surrealistic/futuristic masterpiece filmed by Panos Cosmatos. Not everyone is able to appreciate this work but it is definitely worth watching (especially for those who are keen on visual aesthetics, symmetry, complex plot and hidden metaphors).
