Boring and Inconsequential!
19 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well! This was NOT what I was expecting. I don't know quite what I did expect, I think I read about this on some website which was obviously by someone who thought a whole lot more of the film than I do now, that much is for sure otherwise they would never have tried to persuade anyone of it's credit. It has very little to credit it with. The movie, as you will already know is about a guy who has been in an institution for years since he was a kid. He obviously 'did something terrible' (there, no spoilers here!) and we meet him on the very day he is released.

There is where it ends.

Almost!

You see not a lot more happens for us lonely viewers. We then are expected to sit back and watch each minute detail of someone (and it could be anyone, there is no other plot line going on!) as they wind their way on a journey to god knows where, for god knows why, in an unbelievably long amount of time, with little to no dialogue, dark camera and odd angles but no finesse...

To put it another way, this film really sucks.

If a movie is about a painful subject then that doesn't mean the movie maker has handled the subject well OR, indeed, made a good movie! In this case, delicate subject or not (for the whole movie you are pretty much unaware of what the subject is!) the movie maker failed miserably.

Also, I am never watching a movie again without at least a look at a trailer if this is what I end up wasting my afternoon with!

Arrgghh!
