Tedious and consumptive
11 February 2020 | by cherry_townSee all my reviews

What is Ben Kingsley doing in this piece which can hardly be called cinematography? A remote Greek island, a vast reservoir of water beneath a road curve and the death by punching pencils in eyes are the only leftovers from the boring movie but even they would evaporate by the next day. Loose characters, a sycophantic mercurial perpetually drunk protagonist and his stalker which should necessarily be lame all in their haze add to the general feeling of comprehensive absurdity
