It's got the weird non-linear but internally consistent logic of Memento or Mulholland Drive or Primer, and the weird approach to sci-fi which keeps today's tech but makes one major change (e.g. Jurassic Park, or Eternal Sunshine [though it seems that's becoming close to reality]) or Primer) that people can share dreams (reminded me with my fascination with lucid dreaming in college). Unfortunately, it cast the wrong actors, both Leo and Ellen Page are both just too baby faced and sweet for the dark grittiness the film calls for. Still, a very enjoyable, ponder-inducing visually gorgeous heist film.
