If you want a fun, sunny time this ain’t it. Turn back now. If you’re up for feeling like you’re on drugs and drown in some gore, buckle up and let’s go. There’s not a great way to really describe this story. The summary above does a good job but it can’t capture the feeling and slow pacing. The lights, colors, and score make this one part King Crimson music video-the opening track, one part fantasy world, one part acid trip, and one part bloody, culty revenge flick. It’s Not Rated so you’re in for heaps of gore and some extra nudity versus an R-rated movie. (Though personally I feel nudity/sex is often rated much more harshly than it should be.) …

Jack and the Cuckoo Clock Heart (2013)

IMDB: [PG] A 19th-century drama about a man whose heart was replaced with a clock when he was born. The situation dictates that he should avoid feeling strong emotions — love, most of all — but he just can’t keep his feelings under wraps.
