I judge movies by their poster art
I don't understand the hate this gets at all??? It's amazingly well directed, written and acted. It never feels forced, even though these rolls could have easily been overacted. The story is a slow burn, stream of consciousness, that still progresses, I think, to a satisfying point, without trying to neccerily push you to any idological end, and I think that's why people don't like it.
My favorite thing about the film is how visually engrossing it is, overall just amazing cinematography, and music of course.
Very Baroque, like if Versace and J.S. Bach made a movie about a degenerate gambler.
Dense, layered, tense, overstimulating, polyphonic, dizzying, all in the best possible way.
The only thing that holds this movie back is the ending, which completely pulled me out of the movie and made me not care at all about anything I had just watched.
