The movie will fall or rise in your viewing experience (pleasure?), according to how you feel about the main actors/characters. They are quite despicable to a degree and you don't exactly know what is going on most of the time. The title gives us a clue, but there is so much more to it.
There is enough tension to fill the whole movie and you will care at least for some of the characters on display. Cleverly assembled and edited, this can be a favorite for some people while not reaching others at all. But that is what tastes are for - and movies are made for
