I’ll keep it short. First I’d give it one star, if I have to.
Seriously, two people came out of the early matinee as we arrived and we found ourselves alone when the movie started. I don’t think that’s ever happened before to either of us.
For most of it I fought to stay awake. I thought this movie might be a joke. Really are they serious?
Most of the dialogue (and it’s all dialogue) could have been cut out of one piece of the movie and pasted into another part of the movie without making a noticeable difference to anyone. A long winded way of saying, it goes no where.
Beyond boring. Boring in Black and White.
And yet, on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes it’s given big ratings, high scores and remarks that it’s a sure awards winner. So, where was the audience?
Second Joaquin Phoenix movie I’ve walked out on.
