Seemed like a pretentious film school stident was given a big budget
I know that they are established film makers but that was my reaction. As an aside, we had dinner out after seeing in the theatre back when we did such things and I recognized a couple sitting next to us from the theatre and One of us asked the others what we thought of the movie and someone said hated it and we said thank god and everyone laugjed
We must run in different crowds because my wife and I, along with a number of our friends, really enjoyed the movie. Maybe as someone who used to bet on sporting events, it hit a little closer to home. The anxiety throughout the movie until its conclusion was palpable.
