User Reviews

Pretty common monsters, but that's not so important.
27 July 2019 | by corceiroSee all my reviews

It's never easy to assign stars and ratings to movies or books. In this case it is particularly difficult and this can be a good thing. Halfway through the movie I found it simply pathetic and pretentious. In the end l had a different opinion, although I do not consider it the masterpiece that many consider. It strives to be an indie film, with indie songs, indie dialogues, indie narrative, indie art direction. For me, this doesn't work very well because it turns out to be partly, a deconstructivist work, which turns out badly in architecture and can't make wonderful films either. However, it is not a film to forget, it is another movie that keeps us waiting for the next ones. Clearly a story that originates in the author's intimate life, so perhaps for this fact it captivates many people.
