One of the most boring film I've EVER seen! A pity because efforts seem to have been maid to give it a visual impact, and the story is quite original. But it's extremely confusing – in the end it just looks "cheap", nearly as if the scenes where put in order randomly and no attention had been maid to the story whatsoever. It's completely at the opposite of Godard's well made and intriguing Alphaville, for example.
Felt like a rich student film So many aspects were left greatly overlooked while focus was paid solely on the imagery. The billiards scene, where they’re discussing Arthur Strike, I kept thinking how I often confuse ‘strike’ as both positive and negative--baseball your strike ‘out’ but in bowling, strike’s the kingpin. Well this film does both.
