Kinda tired of people giving low score for a movie because they don't understand or they don't like these kinda movies yet they watch it or they compare it to a book.

First of all a book is a book. A movie is a movie. Don't watch these type of movies if you don't like them. If you don't understand it or the connections or whatever it is that you don't understand, then it is a problem in your head. Not in the movie.

Anyway. Usual crime story. OUTSTANDING CINEMATOGRAPHY AND SCORES!

In the end that WIDE SHOT on the lake was INCREDIBLE!
