Super slow with little content and plenty of repetition
No doubt that repetition bit might be one of the things the movie tries to hit home. It doesn't make for an interesting movie though. After a while, I found I had to use my media player to speed up the "action". Tracking shots going on for minutes on end with somebody just walking and walking.
Towards the end I was actually watching at 8x and 16x speed and could follow what was going on, if "going on" is the correct term.
Nothing of value here, for me anyway. Simply no story, or, at the very best, the bare bones of one. It amazes me that they thought 120 minutes of this was a good idea.
