If you're looking at this as a "movie", you're lost to begin with. This is audio/visual poetry. It's pure feeling, pure experience. If you don't get it, that means you're just an average ordinary person. If you do get it, it means you're an artist. Either way doesn't make you right or wrong (these things are more difficult to quantify than 1 - 10)
For me, a gay artist, this is one of the best and most moving films ever made. But most people aren't gay artists, so I get the "less than stellar" rating.
Actually, it's a wonderful thing.
I don't want to have the same middle-of-the-road taste as everyone else.
