fucking strange murder mystery with the strangest turns... uh yeah. I mean give it a shot if you got the time to kill. I didn't dislike it.
I thought it was just okay. It was too convoluted and it didn't start to make sense until the movie was half way over. Even then, there were twists, but they were stale and kept the movie going when it didn't seem necessary. If the movie ended a half hour earlier, I would have given it a higher skull rating.
Beautiful cinematography and camera work but.... What?
Some real moving moments of cinematography
Reminded me of "Smilla's Sense of Snow" (1997), where the pace is defined by following the clues, not looking for repetitive gore or fake action scenes. The main characters are driven by perseverance, something with which we all identify.
