It's quite mediocre and predictable for most of the part. The shock value, which I feel inevitable for such movie, was negligible. The twists are meaningless as they're pretty predictable to be a twist in its real sense, thereby adding to the dissatisfaction. But since the stories, excluding the last one, weren't a drag and overall it was about average (having okay performances, not extremely boring, etc.), I decided to give it such a fine rating.

It was hardly engaging and often enraging (not owing to the situations in the movie, but due to dull execution). The performances didn't help any to elevate the experience. Boring and avoidable "classic" flick, IMO.

So much time spent on showing characters walking, sleeping, eating, brushing, skiing, etc. that hardly adds anything to the story. Just filled with too much of nothingness. There were a handful of worthwhile moments, but not enough to overlook its pacing. Being lauded by so many viewers, I kept waiting for something interesting to happen, but in vain eventually. Even at the end, when they show a group of people walking, I hoped something to happen. But they kept walking for a while, and the movie ended there abruptly. Art lovers & elite cinegoers might surely hail this flick as meaningful cinema, but to ME, it's sheer BS & an exercise in futility.
