Routine, restarts, repetition, ritual. Important or fatuous? Left or right? Two steps forward or trip and fall? Extreme or moderation?

“He was not alone in being alone.”

This film finds success in its ability to have the viewer tangled in the infinite potential variables (albeit separated by time) revealed in the experiences of ‘the subject’, but also, in the quiet moments, have them question the variables in the landscape of their own life. Deeply philosophical, scientific and almost religious, we follow the dulcet, calm tones of the narrator as he leads us into the reflections of the reflections, the variables within the variables, an exploration of everyday moments as much as a dizzying lurch over a bottomless chasm.
