Opinion is always relative. Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry.
But I believe this is distinctively and markedly bad. I've seen bad movies. Rarely are they bad AND painful. And movies that question the filmmakers common sense.
If you're going to be esoteric and subjective, at least make it interesting. Do something entertaining. Insightful. At least make an attempt at such.
But there was about 10 minutes of story in the first 1.5 hours of this slow piece of crap. Then the actual story finally began about 10 minutes from the end.
For those who will brush this off and want to go to this will be treated to a series of very slow and boring scenes of a supposed movie star and his boring life. No insight into this character and no attempt to do such. How do you possibly make the prospect of being a movie star who beds several very beautiful women an unattractive prospect? You don't even know if you like or hate this guy. He's just a guy.
Forget story. Forget perspective. Forget a payoff. It takes forever to begin and then quickly ends. Endless and dull scenes.
Cut. Cut! CUUUUUTTTTT!
