Shot in some beautiful locations and with music by the legendary Ennio Morricone and that's it. Everything else is quite awful -- frequently unbearably so. It would have been more watchable as a music video for an airport waiting lounge with all of the dialogue and much of the acting removed.
Where do I start? This 3-hour amble through the desert of derivative imagination features stereotypical characters with a tremendous lack of motivation for their "actions." The characters are very shallow and the music, while beautiful, really doesn't work AT ALL! The sound design sounds out of phase and detracts considerably from the story, and the lip sync is quite bad. Incredibly redundant, clearly meant as a mini-series, breaking up the overly long experience over a few days/weeks. Great to watch with a group of friends as a party movie. This 'film' really is a study in what not to do, and, as such, is worth watching.
