It's beyond my capacity to understand how this movie got ANY awards, much less numerous prestigious awards. It was pretty much just views of perpetual misery from many, MANY different angles, with little difference in perspectives. And all without any redeeming qualities. That was sixteen hours of my life that I will never get back.
What's that? Two and a half hours? That movie was only TWO AND A HALF HOURS LONG!
I will say this, though (and it's why I gave it two stars instead of one), the acting was EXCELLENT. Also, the cinematography was very good. In fact, I would say that it traded in all believability and, in return, got absolutely nothing.
