A true spectacle. A film like this only comes along once in a while, and when it does we should stop and appreciate that the creators dared to dream and let this be a larger than life experience rather than some trivial and attempted poetic pseudo philosohical diatribe. Sometimes, the drippy melo drama needs to just take a back seat and let the visuals take charge, and this movie did exactly that.
It had all the makings of a truly spectacular film, they just forgot to breath life into it, by not taking the time, focus, and sincereity it needed. The acting, the plot details, the dialog, none of it really had much strength, drama, or passion. It felt a bit rushed and superficial. Some slower, softer, sweeter moments would have helped.
