I found very few flaws with the film. Maybe a couple of instances where the continuity was a little off. Aside from that it was well written, shot, acted, directed and edited. The whole cast was the best of British.
There's a much better film called Lunacy from 2005 that uses the same story.
It's quite arty, but never gets dull.
I never saw that movie as well. I was never really too fond of Jan Svankmajer's films, the stop motion animation never really worked for me.
Anyway reading the synopsis for that movie reminded me of a Japanese movie I saw years ago. It's called Dogra Magra, don't remember too much but it was quite muddled. By famous Japanese director Toshio Matsumoto (his movie Shura is quite good). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0223154/
I really liked The Machinist and but thought Transibberian was a bit of a let down. May check this out.
I always find it disconcerting when a film with such big names like this and a solid director behind the camera can just go under your radar without you even realizing its existence. Demonstrates the sheer volume of content out there vying for our attention.
