This movie was a slow burning confusing mess. The things that were intended to be suspenseful were really just weird and needlessly complicated. In places it felt like they were writing as they filmed and didn't really know where they were going with it. It does have some really beautiful cinematography though, and there is a pretty solid sense of visual style. There are worse things to say about a film than that it is boring and pretty.
Boredom in a can, ladies and gentlemen. Boredom in a can.
Let’s put it this way; if you’re having a hard time falling asleep, watch 10 minutes of this crap and you’ll be out like a light!
what did i just watch? i feel like you need to be on acid or something to get the real feel of thus film. it wasn't bad, don't get me wrong.. it was just incredibly weird.
