A 5th grader could've written, directed and edited this film better
What a sloppy convoluted mishmash story riddled with plot and technical issues, and equally as bad in the editing and directing departments. Was Olivier Assayas drunk and/or high when he put this together? It's a complicated slog of a film that is dull and boring and makes no sense, that the 127 min runtime felt like 5 hours. And the ending felt like they used up the budget lol. The only redeeming qualities was that the acting was on point, the landscapes beautiful, the sound and score decent, and the cinematography was excellent, and that's where my very generous 5/10 rating goes towards. Such a shame on the lost potential had a better director and screenwriter been hired instead of Assayas.
