I watched this movie twice over one weekend. "Twice" you ask and then gave it a 2? Well, the first time I watched it with the sideways look that a dog might give its master when thoroughly confused. The second time was only because I could not believe that it was as bad and unintelligible as I thought it had been. As it turned out, I was right the first time.
This is a movie for those who have read the book and want to complete the Osterman cycle...book and movie. Then the movie would, perhaps, make sense. As a stand alone film, it seems to hope to rely on its vagueness and strangeness to make the viewer believe he is watching a genius at work, but alas, "sometimes a cigar is just a cigar".
