This is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. It is absurd and existential. Reminds me of dadaist works of art. Funny and makes you think.

Bad arguments on "No reason," premise of the film:
Lieutenant Chad: In the Steven Spielberg movie "E.T.", why's the alien brown? No reason. In "Love Story", why did the two characters fall madly in love with each other? No reason. In Oliver Stone's "JFK", Why's the President suddenly assassinated by some stranger? No reason. In the excellent "Chainsaw Massacre" by Tobe Hooper, why don't we ever see the characters go to the bathroom... or wash their hands, like people doing in real life? Absolutely no reason. Worse, in "The Pianist" by Polanski, how come this guy has to hide and live like a bomb... when he plays the piano so well? Once again the answer is "no reason".
Lieutenant Chad continued: I could go on for hours with more examples. The list is endless. You probably never gave it a thought. But all great films, without exception, contain an important element--a "no reason". And you know why? Because life itself... is filled with "no reason". Why can't we see the air all around us? No reason. Why're we always thinking? No reason. Why do some people love sausages and other people hate sausages? No fuckin' reason.
