What a letdown. I knew I shouldn't have had my hopes so high after that awesome trailer. It was just so dull and lifeless until the last 30 minutes or so, by then I had to force myself to care. And it went out with a fizzle, not a bang.
That said, it wasn't for lack of effort. The acting was near-perfect, and the aesthetic and cinematography was excellent. Also, it had some of the most thoughtful visual story-telling I've seen in awhile. So many layers of the plot being chipped away in each shot, it was really impressive actually. I just wish it had been more interesting and better-paced. I recognize that it is a "good film", but it just didn't work for me.
