My reflection of "Breafast of Aliens" (1993)

So I found this movie while searching for something to watch a little earlier. The description made it seem like more of a comedy than it actually was, so I thought it'd be a good way to burn some time away. What I found though was a very strange and interesting story about a good natured loser, named Walter, and the "Outer Limits"-styled adventure he was sucked into by complete accident. 

"Breakfast of Aliens" really, really surprised me. The tone bounces around everywhere, and I literally could not tell what was going on in certain scenes. There's a darkness to this movie that I can't really explain. It goes from being a straightforward narrative to a twisted nightmare; but who's nightmare is it? I'm not sure, but I feel like I need to watch it again to get a better grasp of what this movie is all about. 

This definitely isn't a bad movie, not by my standards anyway, but it is a strange movie. Worth seeking if you like films that are experimental in nature. Below is a review I found that highlights some of the scenes from the film.
