fyi there's a short scene after the credits like a marvel movie
Very odd movie that gives you a lot to think about. I went with people who have and haven't read the original stories and poems so we all had a different experience and different hindsight analysis. To give you an idea, we ended up staying in the parking lot for over an hour in the hot sun discussing it.
I'm not sure if I liked it or not, but I don't think this is a movie that should even be judged by whether or not you liked watching it, that's not really the point.
I will say I rather disliked the editing. If you see it you'll understand what I mean, but the timing of the cuts and what shots it cuts between as well as the fade transitions make the whole movie feel like one long trailer. I can't tell if it's on purpose so you never settle in (and thus gives the movie the feel of a "and then THIS happened" style that old stories have), or if it was just edited sloppily.
Wonderful! Amazing cinematography (Almost every single every shot is stunning), strange but interesting story and great atmosphere. Did not understand everything, but that's the idea. Eager to read the book now.
