Just about the concept

lead:
No wonder that a lot of fun it is to develop an idea like that, but for the audience it's just an unwanted game.

review:
The main idea has a crucial problem in itself, that it's not a question to the audience at all, whether it's fact or fiction. With that the film becomes a game without any motivation for the viewer to view it, no matter how well the idea is developed with how much references and symbols about the theme. In 'Adaptation' it was clear too, that the end of the film was fiction, and it too had a well developed, inner concept underpinning this "cheat" - but a concept which was no doubt real and serious, thus holding the audience in its grasp. With that missing (and there is no way to be seen for me to fix that problem), if this script would ever be produced, its twist, revealing the films concept, would be a huge disappointment to the audience.
