Quotes

Christopher: It is not really what you do, it's more the intensity by what you do it. By the conviction of the reality you believe in, you make others believe it. You can not make it up, really. And then people get convinced, even yourself gets convinced, whatever that is. It is not a hidden track that is there waiting for you. You got to step into it, whatever that is. That is like painting, you do all the things that are not right but they all contribute to the thing that will be right in the end. It's ...

worst film I have ever seen - no exaggeration
12 March 2011 | by sophielock119See all my reviews

I am ashamed to say that I have actually watched this film! It is the worst film I have ever seen, filled with pointless scenes that seem to be extended for minutes more than needed. It becomes more and more painful to sit watching this film knowing that, after realising half way through the film that there will be no storyline and not one single bit of action or interesting dialogue, the finishing line is completely unpredictable - it could be several hours before the torture comes to an end. There are no words to describe this film apart from dull - what is the point of any of it? There may be some deep meanings to it, but they are not obvious and not even that good when you think about it. I could have easily made this film, taking a few shots of a rock or a window or a flower and throwing in some standard regular nobodies who can't even keep up a conversation without repeating themselves several times. The fact that I have felt the need to even write this, even though I have nearly fallen asleep from watching it, shows just how much I detest this film and what I can not believe is how interesting people make it sound on their reviews.

To sum up, if I filmed paint drying on a wall for two hours, it would probably be more enjoyable than this. - relief of the end = general consensus of the audience in the cinema.
