I wanted to like this, it looks really good, has some good actors, and the idea sounded neat! I am absolutely not scared of movies that take a long time to develop characters as long as it pays off, but it dragged, didn't really go anywhere and ultimately was not a movie that I can recommend to anyone unless they are film students looking for cool ways to shoot scenes...December 7th, 2012 · Details
Absolute pretentious, disturbing, non-entertaining dreck. You WILL walk out because NONE of the questions you may have initially watching this film will be answered by "enduring to the end". There are no answers. It is all the same: SENSELESS, disturbing, pointless, uninspiring, depressing. Don't waste a moment or a dollar. Watch ANY documentary on Netflix and see something TEN TIMES better.July 15th, 2011 · Details
If you love movies that are based in imagery instead of dialogue then you may like this movie but we walked out asking what it was the director was trying to say? Some scenes are lengthy with images and simply boring. Many people walked out of the theater. This one is really not worth your time.June 18th, 2011 · Details
