I watched 'home' earlier, a short film based on the JG Ballard story The Enormous Space, shown as one of those "bbc4 on bbc2" moments (i.e. part of the continued insistence by the beeb that bbc2 is no longer showing any interesting or high-brow programming and we must all get digital). I found it quite reminiscent of some Paul Auster moments and also Mark Danielewski's House of Leaves, although I don't know when the Ballard story was actually written – I presume it predates most of these. It was very good and, like the other writers mentioned above, revealed an essential truth of existence: true freedom is only found through logical madness.

Logical madness? Interesting, care to elaborate?
