I just watched the movie and I am literally completely lost and was hoping someone could explain it to me.

SPOILER

First of all, one problem I had with the movie is that in the last third it was hard to tell which twin was which and the line was really blurred. I read a plot summary afterwards, but I am still lost.

Basically the one twin, Elliot, wants to help his brother, Bev, with his drug problem. So he decides to take the drugs as well so he can synchronize his bloodstream with Bev's (whatever that means in that context), and then he decides to kill himself, and have Bev do it. He says doing so will help them cause they will be 'seperated'.

Now what does this have to do with helping Bev with his drug problem, and saving the medical practice? How does Elliot dying, solve anything? And then after Bev kills Elliot, he decides to go to sleep, and then wakes up and then he starts calling out Elliot's name, looking for him, even though Elliot's dead body is right there in plain view.

He then calls Claire on the phone, but doesn't talk to her. He then hangs up the phone, goes back to the building where Elliot's dead body is, and then dies on top of him. What? How and why did Bev die all of a sudden. This whole thing made no sense to me. Unless I missed something?
