Ben Stiller has a long track record of disappointing me. For me, he's like Tina Fey: I get their jokes, and I see how they are supposed to be funny, but they just don't make me laugh.
But the visuals on this movie look stunning. I particularly love the director's use of color temperatures and the interplay between advancing and receding colors.
The story of a man caught up in his daydreams is easily relatable and this could be really good. But I need to see more.
