what a mess

Artsy-fartsyness throughout instead of plot. Here we are in bullshit-artist heaven. Music? No. Noise? Yes! Not even sleazy. Slash and gore, of course. For nitwits and idiots - others stay away.

However, judging from the way Americans vote, maybe there are people like this out there? But if there is, artsy-fartsy is not the way to deal with it. Here, these people are just dealt with like monsters to be done away with. stay away Stay away Stay Away. Where did the money come from to produce this picture? That's a big question. Another big question is whether I have now produced enough lines to get this review posted? I wonder. The rain is on the roof and the birds and bees and yada, yada, you dada.
