    ★★★★½

    84/100

    Featuring the most hellish Rube Goldberg machine imaginable?

    This is one of those projects that I feel guilty for laying my instant-gratification-addicted eyes upon. I watched this at the end of a weekend-long food coma where my fitbit thought I was dead from inactivity, so to say the dichotomy between this celebration of freakish diligence and me was distinct would be an understatement.

Mystifying to all upon first inspection, the film was never intended for lethargic audiences. It was intended for the analytical and inquisitive who constantly and passionately congregate the clues in an attempt to solve the bamboozling riddle. I, myself, may not have unlocked…
