Horrendous is the only word that describes this failure of cinema
How does a film with such amazing talent attached to it end up this bad? I am struggling to figure out what went wrong, and I think I might have figured it out. The acting is well-done, the directing is serviceable (if a bit amateurish), the cinematography is decent, and the script is...adequate? So, aside from the acting, the movie is just an avalanche of poor decisions, from the weak editing to the lack of critical analysis into what could possibly be trimmed in order to a yield a more cohesive experience. The story makes little sense, the practical effects are poorly done despite being few and far between, and when the "big reveal" is shown, it looks like something from a bad 70's Sci-fi movie.
Additionally, am I supposed to feel sympathy for a character that is the architect of her own demise? She drinks, smokes, and does drugs almost incessantly, and when things happen to her, I am supposed to feel sorry for her? I just don't understand this line of reasoning. I did not feel anything for any character in this film, and I think this is its greatest failure. If I can't sympathize with a drunk, drug abusing derelict, have I failed as the audience or is the character just not meant to illicit any visceral emotional response? As it stands, the movie is what could be commonly referred to as "hot garbage", and I will be twirling my lip in disgust whenever the stench happens to cross my mind. Such a waste of a great premise and fine acting. Absolutely abhorrent.
