It's not to say there's not a lot wrong with the film, but rather to suggest that the chief criticisms of it being strange and "a mess" aren't among them.

Amazingly, Kilmer delivers an odder performance than Brando. Creepy retelling.

Roughly akin to watching a slow-motion train wreck in which the flames spread into the brush and become an out-of-control wildfire. What the hell happened?

There's the obese Brando pretending to be God while dressed in gauzy white robes like a demented pope

In its final third, the movie goes to hell in more ways than Frankenheimer intended.

The most exciting characters are killed off too early, and what we're left with is a Satan's "Seasme Street."
