But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

That clip seems almost too self-aware, like Breen has read up on why his films have developed a fanbase lately and he's just dialing up the awkwardness even more, in response. Still...funny shit, though.

I'd imagine so tbh. Some mistakes were so obvious that I believe it was self-aware. Still, seeing this in theatres was so entertaining that I've seen it 3 times. It's up there with seeing 2001 in imax.
