The central philosophical point about how the mind can lose its ability to distinguish between reality and fantasy is intact and full marks to the team for not messing with it. The film focuses on the nature of fantasy itself. We think we desire the object of fantasy, but in reality, we only want the fantasy of desiring for objects. The complex point – which is also the film’s central message – comes across clearly. Other than that, the remake feels as if it is merely going through the motions. We feel that the filmmaker is simply content making his point and moving on.
