I'm still not sure exactly what Matthew, whose idea the film was, had in mind with this convoluted plot line. At first I thought he wanted it to be Kierkegaardian; an attack on reason to make room for faith and all that nonsense. Then I thought it could be Nietzschean, saying that this is the contradictory way we all live in order to sustain our species. But the original idea was conceived out of contempt for religious manipulations of the death drive. At any rate this film was created last October. It was much longer to begin with, but I was tired of the way the film ended before, which really made no sense.
