I am not sure if the movie or the above review is more entertaining
The above review is why the Internet is so wonderful. It seems too good to be true. It's as if the review were created to make us laugh. Sadly, a part of me thinks that the primitive, reptile brain of the above reviewer - who struggled through the whole movie - waiting for it to suddenly blossom into "Saw 9" or something equally as miserable - is real. A real person somewhere is angry that the film's title doesn't somehow meet the expectations of a typical 'merican movie watcher. This is a wise and cultured reviewer who prefers films that contain "2" or "3" or "4" in the title and loved "Jeepers Creepers." They likely have "Everybody Loves Raymond" on DVD and cannot wait for the next segments in the "Star Wars" franchise. Incredible.
This film is incredibly well done. It defies expectation and forces us to think. We are shown what we think we won't be and left to wonder about other events we don't get to see.
But one would have to possess a minimum level of intelligence and see the world from other than the grease-smeared, myopic lens of Hollywood and the absolute fountain of complete feces that it spews directly into the minds of the thick-calved dullards of 'merica - who stop shoveling popcorn into their faces long enough to loudly narrate most sequels to those around them in the cinema.
You, dear reviewer above, you scholar of film, and curator of culture, are so mind-bogglingly stupid that I cannot even think of a word or string of words that would do your primate brain justice. I do love it that you sat and waited and hoped for this movie to get dumb and feel so cheated when it didn't even register. Idiot. Luckily, though, you have saved many similar amoeba from suffering your same fate and they can no doubt put down their hot pocket long enough to reach for the remote to dial up some "Saw 13" and save themselves from the disappointment.
What were you even doing watching a film with subtitles? That's punching way above your weight class.
