This was such a struggle to get through, and very unrewarding for doing so.

Since I've read the book, I knew what was going on. I also had no idea what was going on. Kaufman's adaptation was so bizarre and unforthcoming that it had me constantly checking how much time was left (too much was the answer)..

The first 20 something minutes are PAINFULLY slow, and the chemistry between the two main characters is so nonexistent yet they supposedly have this super deep connection. The character of Jake was so flat and mumbly - nothing like the sophisticated intellectual he was in the novel, but I tried to push that out of my mind. I was rapidly losing interest when the two finally arrived to Jake's parent's house, and there was a moment where I truly thought this movie was going to be incredible. Suddenly I was questioning what I was seeing, the unnervingly strange exchange between characters was unsettling and dread started creeping up in my chest. It stirred up the kind of uneasy feelings I got during my first viewing of Hereditary.

I'm a huge fan of strange movies that feel like a bad dream, not a nightmare necessarily, but a dream where things make sense but don't at the same time, and you have a pit in your stomach but don't know why. I like subtle strangeness, enough to pique your interest without beating you over the head with it. Unfortunately there quickly came a point when this movie catapulted over that fine line and became so frustratingly bizarre. It felt like it was trying to be Mulholland Drive. I am all for a strange trip of a movie but it has to be coherent enough to make sense in some way. If I didn't read the book I would have no idea what this movie meant or what was really happening, it just became too ridiculous for me to enjoy.

I presume people will talk about how bizarre it is on social media which will make people curious enough to watch it, but it was so unsatisfying and an overall waste of time.

I felt like this movie was cobbled together by a second year English major that was given way too much marching powder over a long weekend. It is the most pretentious drivel I have ever had the displeasure of watching. The only accomplishment was made by the editors of the trailer that managed to make the film look enticing. They should either get an award or be brought up on fraud charges.

What a pompous load of trash. A film so arrogantly caught up in trying to be artistic and interesting, leaves you with Nothing instead... I even went looking to see if their was some great insight I missed, that was simply more time lost. I imagine groups of people reading in all sorts of interpretations of the events, patting themselves on the back for their elevated understanding of the events..in this case the king has no clothes, stop trying to see what is not there... And how can I unsee that movie.... I want my 2 hours back.

I could only conclude this plays out in the mind of someone suffering immense mental torment coupled with severe psychiatric disorders - maybe that was the point!

I can watch Jessie Buckley all day and she is outstanding but: the narrative gave me little or no value and you at least need to have something to hang your hat on - the end completely spoiled the experience, what little there was. Yes, we can all conjure up coded, clever and complex interpretations on a life; distort them to our hearts content - but they need to anchor themselves on something you might reflect on as reality, or we might as well interpret the dreams of pigs to make sense of our own world.

... and if, as several reviews suggest, you need to read the book to get a grasp on what we have seen, or you will see (never had to read the manual for a film before), that need lays fairly and squarely at the table of the director and writers, who were unable to make a successful and satisfactory transfer. It results in a very abstract but ultimately selfish and disconnected illusion.
