4.5 Sure, overly verbose, histrionic max, irony overload, explicit social commentary, but come on... this is CINEMA. I found myself sneering, gaging, laughing out loud often, even a little tear here and there (I'm sensitive). This feels like some open rope Buñuel dropped from the mast. The "point" is clearly made, via a devastating love story. A satire that pricks under the skin. But can you deny the humanity?
