The only thing worse than torture-porn, is pretentious torture-porn.
Really, this film adds nothing valuable. The real philosophical issue could have been presented in less than ten minutes. The rest of it is nothing but torture-pron. This means that torture, suffering and confusion is the main point of the film. The only thing in doubt is whether the "philosophical" issue has been added to pretend like it's a real movie, or if it was added intentionally to try and "get away with it".
Watch it if you are one of those sickos who enjoy watching helpless suffering (but you might spend your time and money better at a therapists).
Or watch it with some friends, take note of who seems to enjoy watching it, and never call them again.
