some people apparently just want to bash some relative unknowns for personal reasons, others want to bash famous people, neither give work a fair viewing. I read the first comments, wonder if his screenplays have been roundly rejected, or what his ax to grind is.
the movie's use of flash backs was quite good, the casting was superb visually, beautiful women. the editing was economical. Itd successfully created an entire world. the photography was great. the acting was superb. every moment believable with tumultuous emotional inner lives. it's sleeper worth seeing. I cannot comment on the script versus the finished film. But he took a tired concept and made it work most excellently.
