Visually striking, tense, surreal, frequently unpleasant. In other words, exactly my kind of movie

Very solid, good visuals, some good body horror. Honestly not seeing where people are getting "hard to follow" here, didn't seem that way to me. I hate when a movie treats me like an idiot with no attention span so I prefer when they keep exposition to a minimum.
