What the Critics say
Jim Judy And thus the film somewhat vexes me in that the lack of much of a story means some or maybe even a lot of everyday viewers will grow bored and quit watching before the 135-minute runtime is up. But art-house aficionados and most critics will fall prey, like me, to the mesmerizing and apparently haunting look and feel of the production that has yet to leave my memory whereas other films I’ve seen have long since disappeared into the void. Accordingly, I might have to watch it again to get a better sense of the quality of the overall production.
