I can't really disagree. It's got some very, very good scenes with some excellent dialogue and some great acting but it's also got scenes that are just terrible. Long ones. Long. If it was about thirty minutes shorter it could have been a whole bunch of dark fun but the pacing is awful and the distance between the great scenes is too far. The film becomes grossly indulgent and has too high opinion of itself.
That fucking lecture at the end. My. God.
