A breakneck pace and some entertaining, imaginative visual flourishes donít really rescue a muddled screenplay that lacks any sense of fun, or a persuasive view of what dreams really look like. The absence of sex is especially peculiar. As in some of his previous films - especially Memento and The Dark Knight - there is an overlay of pretension, and a failure to think through how human motivation really works. Itís gimmicky enough to pass the time, but a waste of an interesting premise.
