This is crapBy kkbirds (3 reviews) , 24 Jun 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]It's crap. Pretentious, overly-constructed, mind-numbingly boring, crap.
Now, people that love this film will say that if you hate it you must not understand it, it's above your head somewhere and the message is just lost. Not true. I get the symbolism, followed the dialogue, understanding the point Cronenberg (and Delillo) is trying to get across. It's still crap.
I equate this to the Tree of Life in some respects. 90% of the public will abhor it and either fall asleep or walk out. The other 10% will say it's the best movie they've seen all year, an incredible piece of art, and deserving of the Palm d'Or. I know which group I fall into.

pure rubbishBy vickig0306 (340 reviews) from Halifax , 19 May 2013I cant believe I sat through the whole of this film. maybe I was hoping something exciting would eventually happen. It didn't!. This film is rubbish
bad bad film, terrible and waste of timeBy AlanJBlue (1 review) , 17 May 2013This film will be loved by the pretentious, and those who wish to put themselves on 'higher intellectual plains' or more accurately want to look down on people. Its a poor sideways look on the modern fast paced life, the need to multitask taken to the extreme, but what it really is is simple... overspun nonsensical tosh trying so hard to be the next 'thinkers' film. don't waste your time, and for anyone who says 'ignore the haters' and things like that, well they let themselves down with the word 'haters'
Pure sarcasmBy taffytaftaf (1 review) , 13 May 2013Dont listen to the haters they just dont get it! This is a well acted film with a script to match,made me think about how the world is controlled in this day and age. This is definitly going to be in my top 10 films of all time
Don't do itBy DVDC (2 reviews) , 13 May 2013This is truly one of the most awful films I have ever wasted my life on. It is pure pretentious crap with a bit of soft porn to attempt to make it interesting. It failed. Really, don't bother thinking it will get better or that it might make sense because it only gets worse and more up itself.
Bored to tears!By a customer , 13 May 2013This film was terrible, its genuinely 2 hours of my life I cant get back! I don't know how I managed to get to the end to be honest, 2 hours of minimal chat between random characters in a limo. WEIRD! Don't bother renting, its not worth it...promise!
