Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: In a weird way, this is the ghost's story. The ghost wants to keep Dino, and even to raise a child with him, but it doesn't want competition, so it drives Alexis away. It gets everything it wants.

Dino wants to complete his documentary, and he succeeds well beyond his own expectations. Even if Wade is upset with him.

Con: We never find out who the mystery man was nor why it was important that the car was red. The shifts in the timeline add confusion, but not a whole lot else.

There is probably something very significant to this being a reverse documentary, but I haven't been able to figure it out. I'd love to hear anyone else's ideas on that.
