This review may contain spoilers.
No genuine plot (besides stupid people crossing into crazy people territory) and was unable to relate to any character because they were drugged half the time, and also made very questionable and passive decisions which even the experience of being drugged cannot account for.
Movie didn’t build a relationship between the protagonist (or any character for that matter) and the audience. We are only provided with rather superficial vulnerabilities of SOME characters (arguably only the protagonist).
Less of being hard to watch (for certain scenes...) I wondered why they were even included and for such a long time, considering that the movie was already so long with such poor build-up.
Saving grace was the cinematography, yet aesthetically curated but meaningless cinematography doesn’t entirely appeal to me either. Just pretty scenes, flowers, and editing.
