This really was dire. I persevered with it (nearly gave up several times!).
It did have some good acting (Tilda Swinton, Ewen Bremner, John Hurt, Ed Harris), and I usually like these sort of "cult" films, if that is the right genre for this. I think more B-movie would be my preferred description. Well, not even B, more a C or a D!
I just don't think the story was worthy of a film and the way it was realised by the director was vague and just generally lacking impact and good set-pieces. The scenes expected to be the good set-pieces seemed to be long and drawn out, either with too much directorial (artistic) flair, or a long and painful build up, so you just want to get it over with.
Strangely this film is rated highly by the critics.
