I'm going to admit my love for this film was an evolution. Like many viewers, I fell in love with Richard Kelly based on Donnie Darko. I trusted his vision. When news hit about him making this movie, I was thrilled. When I first saw it in theaters, I was ... well...stunned, I suppose. I didn't outright hate it like many of my friends. But I felt that Kelly was insulting me, as though he was lampooning his own dark vision of time travel and multiple dimensions. Strangely, when I heard The Killers' ALL THESE THINGS THAT I'VE DONE on the radio, I went and bought a copy of Southland Tales again. And I watched it. And I watched it. And I watched it again. And something magical happened. I got it. This is a movie with messages on so many levels, layers of meaning and interpretation, both religious, societal, and even about pop culture and film itself. This was not a throw-away film, this was not Richard Kelly being self-serving and narcissistic. This film is vision. Yes, it's an allegory about the Second Coming. But it's a lot more. There's a reason why Kelly tapped comedians to perform dramatic, lunatic roles. Yes, The Rock was the perfect choice for the lead character, even though critics questioned his ability to carry this movie. And I side with the theory that, in fact, Justin Timberlake is key to understanding the whole movie (you can find this written somewhere on Google; I won't spoil it here). This is a film made for multiple viewing. This is a film that will morph in meaning depending on what time of day you watch it, how you are feeling when you watch it, and even what shit is happening in your life during the time you see it. Most of my friends still think I'm nuts when I tell them that, yes, this is Richard Kelly's masterpiece, and yes, this is one of the most important movies made since 2000. And I'm sure many of you will feel the same about my views. But, do me a favor. Watch it again. And again. Give it a marathon viewing. And then give me your opinion. 5/5

For all those naysayers who compare this to Donnie Darko just because of Richard Kelly, get a life. This was in my opinion one of the best films i have seen in recent times, and for some reason you people tend to hate it, (probably because you dont understand the context that the film is trying to protray) It's a well made film with alot going on, if you follow the story you will understand whats going on. 9 out of 10 for me

I cant even begin to say why I hated this movie.......dont know....I guess its just not my cup of tea....one thing I can say is, its rare that a movie has that kind of effect on me.....no rating from me

It's tragic that this movie has been met with such horrible criticism, and such rampant comparisons to Donnie Darko in it's being denounced--they are two separate beasts. My only criticism is that perhaps Kelly would have fared better had he not dropped his audience hodgepodge into the middle of the story, leaving the first half of the story for the graphic novel to fulfill and making just the second half of the story a film. Still, I didn't know anything about the graphic novel going into it, and found enough of the backstory there for the film to work for me. However, if you didn't like a film such as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, then you'll no doubt hate Southland Tales, too, although Southland is so richly textured, and in layer upon layer. Perhaps the biggest thing to avoid is expecting the satire, the lampooning, to have some kind of profound meaning, when this IS a comedy, and the lampooning I don't think is meant to offer any profundities about life, other than to say, maybe, that life is just as absurdly random (and meaningless?) as the film is. So, I have to go against the grain here and say that I loved it: 8.5/10.

I really wanted to like this movie but it ended up being long boring and all over the place!

I agree with most people, it is a very strange movie. Had a bunch of stories in it that were a bit confusing however that doesn't mean the actors sucked, they were all pretty good. This is i think in my opinion one of the rock and justin timberlake best work ever. Had to watch the movie 2 times to finally understand that this was a movie about the book of revelation.. i know i know im an idiot for not knowing that even when justin quoted from the book. but i still couldnt get what kelly was trying to prove in this movie but at the end i finally got it. could have been a 10.10 if it wasn;t all over the place but after that it was interesting. watch the movie and keep an open mind don;t just base judgement on what people write below, i kinda consider it a must watch. 9/10.

Dark comedy that takes place in an alternative universe one in which atomic bombs detonated by terrorists in Texas in 2005 have led us into World War III, reconfiguring both the political landscape and the development of internet/media into an exaggerated version of the post 9-11 one in this universe. This is not a movie for everyone, it is filled with allegorical imagery and requires a keen eye, open mind and a willingness to think a little. If your idea of a good movie is one that requires little thought and is pretty much self explanatory, this is not the movie for you. This is a film that you will either love or will pretty much despise. Southland Tales is different, it tries to be bold and big and maybe at times because of that it overreaches. IMO there is a fine line between effective use of imagery and being so cryptic that you alienate a large segment of the viewing population (which this film tends to do). There does come a point at which disconnected imagery without some form of glue to bring it together in a somewhat cohesive fashion becomes really nothing more than a jumbled mess. Southland Tales for the average viewer will cross that line very fast, for those patient enough to think it through and hang in there it will be a cult favorite. Personally I really dug the film, it made me think and I loved the satirical take on our society it presents. I also realize though that 2 out of 2 who watch this either wont get or wont like it. I recommend the film overall and give it a 8.2/10

Great Movie! 4/5 - This is one of those movies that may seem strange at first but it all comes together in the end. I don't know why people are giving this movie bad reviews. In my opinion, this has everything I like to see: sci-fi, comedy, thriller, a little action, sexy women, and a very interesting story line. Now one of my favs.

Unlike most here, I loved this movie through and through. It stuck with me for weeks afterwards and now, years later, I still get the craving to watch it. But, as I found to be the usual; I go against the grain.

There are some interesting parallels between this and Donnie Darko - including at least two of the more notable characters (DD's father and Beth Grant, the prolific actor who played his prudish gym teacher). The story itself wasn't extremely close to DD, though, I won't say that, but there are some parallels I can't really get into without giving too much away. In fact, they're not even really obvious until the last 25 minutes or so of the film. At any rate, I loved this film. You might say the acting was flat and shallow, but that's just how good it was - they were portraying a world full of flat, shallow people in a situation that exceeded them. You have to like somewhat slow, puzzling oddball films that don't make much sense, even up to the end - the parallels to DD come in some of the kinds of strangeness that occurs. The visuals were all done very well, regardless of any other consideration. For me, 4/5.

An interesting sci-fi, that in my opinion tries too hard to look dystopian and surreal and that makes it sometimes too weird for no reason.

this movie is well written and is a really good movie. The main message in this movie is hard to fallow at times. if you watch this movie let me know what you think and i will share my opinion. The original cut of this movie is 3 hours long

great cast, the rock was fantastic without throwing a punch, the highlander guy never wailed no sword but who cares, stifler and buffy the vampire slayer sure have come a long way. timberlake is a much better actor than a singer! also the fat guy from mad tv pulled it off!
