This is a unique movie about political corruption, small town politics, and of course individual greed. There's a wacky and reckless sense of humor to it that's enticing. It gets a little tiresome during the middle, but man a lot of the problems are as relevant today as they were back then.
This movie is really boring. I have no problem with slow paced movies. I love 2001. This movie is no 2001. There's too much drama hinging on the 0.00001% possibility of someone floating in the correct direction. The "womb" symbolism hits hard, obvious, slow, and often. Though a lot of the visuals are beautiful. The plot just doesn't work.
