There's a great film in there but the pacing seriously holds it back. The central mystery is interesting and there's some genuinely brilliant scenes if you can get through the attempts at art cinema. Worth a watch.
Actually i enjoyed it. It felt long, u guess the story is slow. But for a debut movie its brilliant. If this is the beginning it can only get better. Most of the elwments are there, great actors, great aesthetics and a goid story . Needs to be beefed up & speeded up. I loved it well done.
Very odd but enjoyable!
Similar in vibe to 'Only God Forgives', in that it's just as boring. Recommended if you like boring, arty-farty movies where not much happens or makes sense.
