My Opinion: This film was interesting and a great spin on life what adventures we create and how we perceive the world around us by incorporating elements of fantasy to navigate through the character's vivid experiences, blurring the lines between reality and imagination. The thematic thread between life and death, as well as the ethical dilemmas surrounding science and human experimentation, adds depth and complexity to the storyline.
