Waste of time
26 October 2019 | by harryplinkett14See all my reviews

Filmmaking is all about emotional involvement. This film fails in that respect, and instead tries to focus on intellectual content. But then it fails again, because the whole thing is too confusing. It comes across as pretentious quasi-intellectual drivel. I don't think anyone who ever saw it actually enjoyed it.
