Trivia

Despite appearing in pretty much every scene, Christian Bale is almost never heard talking onscreen as most of his lines are spoken as a narrator. He is occasionally seen speaking but you can not hear his words as background music is playing. Only in a couple of scenes is he actually heard and seen onscreen at the same time. See more »

What is this about?
10 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

I am usually quite tolerant of movies that seem to miss the mark, but this disaster was nothing but a disjointed series of unrelated scenes. It gave me the impression the director just got a new camera and was trying out all of the features on arbitrary meaningless subjects.

It would be very interesting to see how he managed to get some notable actors to participate in this. Maybe they owed someone a favor, I don't know. But what I do know is there is no story of any kind here. Nothing.

At least I did not feel too alone when I asked, "What is this about?", as I am sure the actors, writer and director all asked the same questions when the saw the screening.

Perhaps a more pertinent questions might be: "How did something like this even get made?"
