Really dreadful
6 March 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Which is really a shame. Because the movie or rather the idea behind the movie has a lot of potential. There are glimpses of genius hidden here somewhere. Unfortunately they are very well hidden and can actually not be found. And that's because the movie indulges in hammering its point home. I don't think you always have to be subtle, but you also have to be respectful to the viewers and their intelligence.

The acting has its ups and downs too. The social commentary drowns in that as it does in the editing (or rather lack of it at times). Of course some would argue that it's necessary to have a scene go on for a very long time, so that the dread of a situation is felt by the viewer. And I would agree to that but just to a point. Because if you have scenes after scenes, that are telling the same story/point, you're way beyond proving a point, you're into boring territory to put it mildly. A shame, but maybe also a learning process for the next one
