The film was quite interesting. It was never boring, except maybe for the first fifteen minutes. Visually, it was immaculate. From the colours to the scenery, it was most definitely a feast for the eyes. The plot gets you invested, and it certainly wasn't uninteresting. Even the ambiguity of the film isn't off-putting, but rather satisfying. The only problem I had with it was the many plot points that went nowhere and the "scientific explanations". Without spoiling anything, all I can say is that they could have gotten away with anything they wanted by simply not attempting to explain anything at all. Instead, they came up with scientific explanations that make no sense at all.
All in all, it was a very well made, incredible looking, interesting -and unfortunately annoying- movie.
