Southland Tales ★½

I seriously have no idea what I just watched. Richard Kelly fills his film to the brim with ideas, I can tell, but what does any of it mean? Does it even matter? And where is the story to connect it all?! The plot lacks any kind of cohesion, bouncing from character to character and location to location without any of them really connecting to each other in any way that makes sense. Characters are given the shaft in favor of Kelly's next display of hubris and intellectualism. The film is also filled with many moments that should be funny or satirical, but end up being way too over-the top and blatant. Again, I can see Kelly is trying to make something good, but the end result is just a complete mess of poor storytelling.
