The Movie is the Message
24 March 2020 | by terrykruegerSee all my reviews

First off, I have to say that it was a decent movie. I can best review this movie with three sentences. #1. Blatantly anti-capitalist, or at least exposing the sins of capitalism #2. Perfect example of a Euro-art movie #3. The ending makes no sense
