    After years of encouragement from a former coworker, I checked this out this morning.

    Trippy, which is the polite way to say: W.T.F.

    I mean, kudos to the titular Malko for agreeing to do the film, and overall I liked it in that thought-provoking, Hollywood original, interesting kind of way. But... WTF. I thought it was perfect that the credits-rolling audio was Bork singing in Icelandic because I think everyone at that point had to be thinking "what the hell did I just watch??" and to have her screeching in a language nobody understands is the perfect fit.

    Already was on the phone to the guy who's been pushing the flick on me, and had a long discussion of the film including the requisite "whose portal would you want to find" postulation. Best I could come up with is Clint. Eastwood, not Howard.

    Great movie. Good question to ponder. I'll have to get back to you on the answer.
