This has got to be one of the most monotonic, depressing, pathetic and utterly boring movies I have ever seen, and add to it that it was 137 mins, just baffles me how this was even made.
What is the point? What is the viewer supposed to get out of watching this? Where is the entertainment? Where is the climax or high point to this film? Why was the score one of the, if not 'the' worst score in any movie I've ever seen? I've felt more alive listening to funeral home background music.
And why is everyone praising the acting? It was terrible! Just start filming after all the actors wake up from a night of drinking and don't give them coffee, and make sure the weather is cloudy and cold, so they don't need to 'act' miserable, as they will automatically be, just as the viewer is left to feel.
This has got to me one of the worst films I have ever seen -not a movie, just a film, as a movie has some entertainment value to it. Is this world not suffering enough that we need something to depress the viewers even more?
Do yourself a favor and read the Plot Synopsis, it is on point, depressing, boring and very long, just like this film and doesn't leave anything out (btw props to whoever put the time in to type out this entire mess of a film). The difference is you can read it in 5 minutes, and save yourself the other 132 minutes to do something fun and exciting, you will thank me. Oh, and you're welcome.
