Critic Review - FilmDrunk

...like a three-hour, constantly shifting contradiction. You want to give it credit for all its dazzling imagery, but almost every actual idea it presents it eventually contradicts or leaves incomplete.

Or maybe the movie was incredibly easy to get and all you who think it's some masterpiece of subtext and messages should watch it again, or grow a brain.

No. The movie is easy to get. It explains itself clearly in the end, but then you think, how did the rest of the movie add up to this? and you aren't so sure. Everyone who loves this movie thinks that it's the deepest thing they've ever seen and that they are geniuses for liking it. I liked it, but found it heavily flawed.

All of the six storylines tie into each other in various ways. The details are in the movie, but everything is connected. It takes a few watches before you can spot everything.

Some art does contradict itself... the ones that do not contain any contradictions are often forgotten first!

It contradicts itself entirely if you pay attention. The Waitress talks about good and bad karma, and you see Boat Doctor Hanks as fucked up as any other villain, yet him and Halle Berry are the only ones who live?

you are talking about two different sets of characters. they are about 350 years apart. Tom Hanks isn't the doctor through the whole movie, it is 6 stories in 1 movie...it all adds up in the end.
