Tortuous Experience

If you like LOTS of baby screaming, this is the film for you. If you like Godard films where if someone asks what time it is and you get a ten minute head-rattling dissertation on the meaning of time, this is the film for you. It's not bad film-making but it's truly horrible film content.

I understand those who want to intellectualize this film into being something it is not but for those grounded in reality be prepared for boredom on an epic scale - with LOTS of baby screaming for a soundtrack. I have nothing against anti-plot films and I like films that have something to say. But an endless string of characters spouting high school philosophy in the guise of being profound is mind numbing. What an ordeal.
