drawn out scenes and far off voyeur angles are atmospheric— and tiresome in such excess. with just a little bit more, oh i don’t know, maybe more script. maybe a more INTERESTING script for that matter. maybe more infidelity. maybe a little less of a whiny lead. maybe more information about the characters in general? too bland for my tastes. with a little more SOMETHING the minimal could have been something beautiful. instead, in turned into a nearly two hour movie comprised of wasting my fucking time. no, i’m not going to watch it again. i’m confident when i say i was quite attentive the first time around. if i’m missing something by this point, i don’t really care.
when i want to rollick in bleak, overcast? i step outside. that’s what the west coast is good for. i’ll give this three stars. third star being awarded for the havoc guy wreaked on his wall. the blood splatter was fantastic. everything else was a big fat pile of arty garbage.
