    The way I think of this film, is that the main character has assigned meanings and expectations to the world he inhabits, and then responds to those meanings and expectations, that is fuelled by anxiety.

Which is tied to the idea, of wanting to see some order, some design, some guiding force, but ultimately being met with silence and an indifferent universe. Bad horrific things are happening, not for any understandable reason, it just simply is. There…
