This film occasionally shows up on TV. I didn't want to go to sleep and there was
nothing else to kill time with so I watched it. Seemed to be going somewhere -
Yes certain scenes are really good and carry weight, but you need a good glue to bind the pretty pictures together. You need to keep the show moving. A book with great drawings still needs the words in between the drawings to be good.
The movie wears a veneer of art and I have a sneaky suspicion that this is why the movie is so overrated: as it pretends to be smart and artistic, some people are pretending to like it so as not to appear stupid or shallow.
In short: good actors, good scenery, but a long and flat story.
