One of those love-it-as-art or hate-it-as-pretension films. Which probably means it should be understood as sitting between those two extremes.

Horrible acting, directing, and an almost non-existent plot. Plus the repetitive music and the constant nickname usage was just plain annoying. I have nothing good to say about this movie.
