    Now, that was a strange film. A lot of good people were tempted to act in it, including an unrecognizable Tilda Swinton. I felt the story couldn't support the allegory (or maybe the other way around). And the ending portrayed what would in fact be a really bad outcome as if it were a really good outcome. Maybe a TV series will work better, without the need for a two-hour story arc.

    No kidding! There certainly was a lot of "why would they even DO that!?" to distract from any intended purpose or message intended with it. And yet oddly impossible to switch away from.
